Chimps prefer MILFS

I had an appointment with "the" surgeon in the area that does ileoanal pouch surgeries. We basically discussed what all I've been through, and what I've tried in relation to my colitis. I'm not responding as well as I'd like to the meds, and I'm tired of being sick. I've been in the hospital three times in the last six months, and that's too much. There is one last medication that might kick in and help but I'm not real hopeful.

Angie and I discussed the options we both think getting a colectomy is the way to go. At that point I'll be "cured" of colitis, I'll just be sans-colon. Some lifestyle changes, and a couple major surgeries but no more major health risks (hospital visits). I wasn't sure how the surgeon would take a young guy (27) whose only had colitis for two years requesting surgery but she seemed pretty open to it. I have to get some other blood work done and sent to them, but it really sounds like it's entirely up to me. At this point I might be leaning towards getting surgery some time in January.

Craziness!
