lojack60 this is a decision you must make on your own. I have the Indiana Pouch and I am very pleased with it. And there are others here that have the outside bag and they are also pleased. So knowing folks here that have one or the other it is not fair for me to tell which one to get. I can tell you this the outside bag is a shorter surgery and they take a lot less intestine to do this procedure. Good Luck, Joe ;)

A little background would be helpful since there isn't a "one size fits all" answer--are you a man? woman? age? lifestyle? is your surgeon experienced in both procedures? your expectations? there more info you can provide the better, since there are many people here who have had one or the other procedures.
