We did discuss all of this. Honestly, it sounds better than constant pain and anguish. I have a laundry list of a second round of questions for him, was just looking for first hand experience.hi. that is interesting. i'm thinking that will be done to me eventually. why he didnt do it while he was in there is a good question i shall ask my doctor.. i think the reason is partly due to allowing insides to heal.. but yur dr might be up on the latest technique.. which works in yur favor. my dr wants to do the hook up next year. you realize him hooking u up this way , you will need to learn to use your spincher to evacuate? what concerns me is the valve doesnt normally work that way and u have to teach it. so in meantime, guess what u need to wear while u train?? the small intestine is designed to just poop. the large intestine is design to hold, contract, evac.. did the dr mention any of this? how u feel about that?
