Description
"One Step: An Informative Introspection on the J-Pouch Surgeries" is a must read for any Ulcerative Colitis or Familial Adenomatous Polyposis patients who are considering undergoing the J-pouch surgeries as part of their treatment plan. Author Tara Sarathi takes readers through her experience of the surgeries and demystifies the process by providing relevant facts and statistics from the medical literature. Patients with Crohn's Disease or patients with an Ostomy will also find enjoyment in the read. The process can be daunting for any patient who is faced with the prospect of having to go through the ileal pouch-anal anastomosis, or J-pouch, surgeries. Having to accept the idea of needing surgery already creates a heavy emotional toll on prospective patients, but the number of negative patient testimonies and misinformation found on the internet about the process does little to decrease the anxiety prospective J-pouch patients often experience. This must-read book offers need-to know information for prospective patients so they can make informed decisions with comfort and confidence.
