My emergency ileostomy surgery for ulcerative colitis (and dvt in my colon ) in 2007 left me with the option to receive jpouch surgery at a later date. After some consults with a specialist surgeon in the field,and asking him & his team a bunch of questions, i took a year to decide if it was for me. I weighed many of the pros & cons to the surgery but kept coming back to, "it's not for me"i currently have basically full control over my ostomy in that i know the routine and am very comfortable with it. When i consulted with the surgeon and point blank asked him, doctor, knowing me, my condition etc, if you were in my shoes, would you go through with the surgery"? He quickly replied, no , i wouldn't because when i'm in a long surgery i cant & wouldn't feel comfortable always leaving to have to go to the bathroom, i wouldn't feel comfortable doing it on an ongoing basis, but don't let that sway your opinion one way or the other. Some of the factors that lead to the nay were , as i said before i feel in full control of my ostomy, with a jpouch i would have to learn all over again. An et nurse on the surgeons team said to the effect, "it's looking like as people age ,since their sphincter muscles weaken, some patients will have to be reversed to an ileostomy again because they cannot hold the stool satisfactory. cheap generic viagra canadian pharmacy generic viagra cheap viagra viagra sale canada buy viagra online buy viagra buy generic viagra viagra without a doctor prescription cheap viagra online buy generic viagra There is a possibility of pouchitis, and i have a condition that could increase that risk by another 5 %. At work i am all over the place, right now i can deal with emptying my pouch during the day, if i had a jpouch & needed a washroom on short notice, that would be difficult at times. As i said i weighed many factors and decided in the end to saying no to a jpouch. If i was 20 or 30 yrs younger, im sure i would look at it differently. I recently spoke with a middle aged man that had undergone jpouch surgery by the same surgeon and he was elated that he didn't need to wear a pouch any longer. He was relearning his bowel habits and was doing quite well. As with so many things, there is no one answer that is right for everyone. Since i declined the jpouch , i am scheduled for surgery later this month to "tidy up" my previous emergency surgery. I'd be interested in hearing oth.

IUDs are the most effective, reversible, long term form of birth control available in Canada. This means they may be a great option for women who are not planning for a pregnancy anytime soon, and do not want to deal with an unplanned pregnancy. Despite this, we found that many women were not aware of IUDs.  In fact only 4% of all Canadian women choose IUD.  This is very low when compared to other countries around the world.  The IUD Clinic is dedicated to providing quality IUD education and increasing IUD awareness for women and health care professionals. 
Getting access to IUD placement can also be an issue.  Not all physicians offer this service.  Sometimes women can wait 3-6 months (or more!) to get an appointment to get an IUD placement by a specialist.  Women may opt for other forms of birth control if they have to wait this long.  Family Physicians may also hesitate to recommend IUDs if they know there may be long delay before their patients can get one placed.  The IUD Clinic is dedicated to offering QUICK appointments for IUD placements.  We can offer initial consultation appointments within days or weeks of receiving a referral!

We are your IUD experts and can also help with any other IUD issues you might be having!
