Question about reconnection

The doctor has been talking about reconnecting me sometime in the future.  He said that he left quite a large section of my rectum and said that I would not need a J Pouch.  He said that he could connect my small intestine right to the rectum itself.  Has anyone had this done??  What was it like for you and what would one expect right after surgery??  Frankly, I am not sure if I even want to do this.  "Maxine" and I are starting to get along famously and things are getting easier.  I am not sure if I want to be cut open again and cause more stress on my already super stressed out body.  This summer has been the summer from hell and I just want some peace and quiet for awhile and I am just getting the pain settled down and am starting to feel normal again.  I already have lost half of my hair to the stress of three surgeries, two of which were quite major and one to repair a broken foot all in a row within a month and a half.  I guess I need some guidence on this from those of you who have had this reconnection.  Are there any of you who were reconnected and didn't have a J Pouch?  I would like to hear how it was for you.
