We were on our way down to the museum of contemporary art, standing on the train platform, and a woman comes up to my friend and asked if she could touch his hair (he has dreads...this is a very common occu...

Just wondering, how many of you (that ended up with jpouches) had radiation before surgery? and how it affected that? i've heard rumors of radiation damaging sphincter muscles...wondering how big of an impact that is? also, how soon do side effects start showing up? I had 4 rounds of chemo and prett...
