Definition of J-Pouch: For those who do not know, a j-pouch is a "pouch" they make from your ileum (bottom part of the small intestine) that will work as your colon (which has been removed) and attached so that way you can use the restroom in the traditional way.
My Brief Background: I had my surgery in 2001, I have had my main incision cut open four to five times, my belly button cut open about the same, and a few other incisions around the abdomen. I have had nine major surgeries and slightly more minor surgeries.
What to expect when/if I am expecting: (Based on what I have read on j-pouch sites.)
Conclusion: I need to stop reading about pregnancy until I actually am pregnant, it will only drive me crazy and make it that much harder if the pregnancy test is negative.
