UC to J-Pouch Story

NY TIMES Jpouch Article

Posted by mark on June 6, 2008

Excellent article here NY TIMES JPOUCH STORY.  It is nice because it talks about how the decision for many with UC Is technically “optional” to have the surgery. They discuss that this optional surgery is a hard decision to make though often life necessary.  I know for Mark and I this was the hardest part of the surgery decision.  It was almost like you wanted him to be so sick that the doctors decided for you, because the risks were so high and the outcome of an ostomy to jpouch was scary.  This is a great story that represents the disease and life with jpouch very well!
