Everything you wanted to know about your internal pouch but were afraid to ask
Are you aware of the wealth of information available on the Red Lion Group website about Pouch history and living with a Pouch?
Over the years, we have posted personal stories from pouch owners and video recordings from the experts and pioneers in pouch surgery from St. Mark’s Hospital and academic institute.
Some highlights from previous Information Days:-
- Personal reflections on 40 Years of Pouch Surgery by Professor R. J (John) Nicholls
- Modern developments in Pouch Surgery by Janindra Warusavitarne
- Fertility, fecundity and pregnancy with a pouch by Sam Evans – Pouch Nurse Specialist
- Pouch emptying and Biofeedback by Ellie Bradshaw – Lead Nurse, Biofeedback Dept.
So, whether you have a j-pouch, s-pouch, w-pouch or considering pouch surgery, why not attend this year’s Information day and hear expert advice first hand on pouch related topics and meet other pouch owners and pre-pouch patients. This year we will be commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Red Lion group.
The 25th anniversary Information day will take place on Saturday 27th April 2019 at
St. Mark’s Hospital, Watford Road, Harrow, Middlesex HA1 3UJ.
