    Hi @stevetheman56 welcome to the community, we are a UK based charity and so all out information and support are regarding UK benefits and appeals so Im not sure how much help we can be for American based law.

    I also have ulcerative colitis and had my colon removed, I had a jpouch for 18 months but had chronic pouchitis during all of that time, I had it removed and a permanent stoma created which is what I have now.  

    So we may not be able to help much with appeals and the law due to the differences between our countries, but you can meet other people on the community and chat about other issues.
