I've had UC for 9 years now and recently my doctor found pre-cancerous cells on two polyps in my descending colon. He is advocating for surgery and says there are options now to have my entire colon removed without a bag--apparently attaching my small intestine. Does anyone have experience with this? I am not against surgery, but it does scare me and I'm most interested in post-op issues (ie, how dramatically-for good or bad-will my life change?)
Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
