has anyone any experience of surgery for uc. I have been referred to a surgeon and he is telling me that I would need a surgery first to remove my colon to see if I have crohns even though I've been diagnosed with uc? then I would have surgery to remove the disease. he is also saying that I might not be able to have a pouch because my schfinkter muscles are weak. however the test came back as fine. he is now saying that I might not be able to have the pouch when he does the surgery and I will wake up and find out if this is the case. he is also saying that even if I have a pouch I will never get back to normal. I was referred to a professor Carlson at Salford hospital but they have ignored my referral and referred me to Mr Soop instead. my mind is in turmoil with it all.
