I have UC & have had a j-pouch for 11 years. Have been having complications & had to get an ileostomy in Jan. I have to decide ngw whether to keep the bag & have a j-pouch excision, keep the bag but leave the j pouch, or try to have the issues fixed and hope I have no further complications. I'm just trying to find out about the surgery based on other people's experience & recovery, and if I keep the bag I have some lifestyle questions.
