Thank you for the query.
The main problem with ileostomy
is that the stool is very watery. And it makes really hard to keep hydrating property. So you need to be aware that people with ileostomy sometimes die because of dehydration
and ions disturbances.
J-pouch after some time acts like a large intestine so the life comfort can be similar to this before the surgery.
Dont know what exactly you do suffer from. If it is only constipation
, you should try with diet change. If you do suffer from partial bowels obstruction and have abdominal cramps and stool blockages, ileostomy might be your chance to get better.
Maybe you should try another opinion from another surgeon.
Hope this will help.
