J-pouch?

Any of you with the pouch care to share your experiences? How did you know the surgery was right for you if it was? I’ve struggled with UC pretty heavily for the last 18 months or so, I mean it’s controlled my life from about when I was diagnosed, and no long term solution works. It’s a lose-lose. Thoughts?
