Hello! I also have ulcerative colitis, in fact I've had it for almost 10 years. Surgery is certainly in my future. I've heard that the stoma sometimes makes fart noises when you pass gas or #2. Is that true? If so, can you hide it? What sort of foods do you eat? Since you no longer have a colon. How long were you out for your surgery? The second surgery is when the j-pouch is created, so are you going to get a larger or smaller one? My doctor told me that the bigger it is, the faster the recovery (normal-ish poop faster) but the smaller it is, you are less likely to get pouchitis.
