I tried looking up my symptoms on this site, but to no luck. I thought I would post my situation to see if anyone has experienced what is going on with me.
I was diagnosed with UC back in 1995 and received my JPouch in 2000 due to my large intestine rupturing. For the most part I have been fine with minimal problems for the past 17 years. I do have an anal fistula that leaks on occasion, depending on what I eat or if I don't take any Imodium for a day or two.
My problems is, for the past week I have had leakage problems from my fistula even when I take my Imodium and now I feel as if I have a pressure where my rectum used to be and a constant urgency to use the restroom. When I do go to the bathroom if feels as if it's hard to defecate. It has also been runny as well, almost like liquid.
Has anyone had this problem or does anyone know what it could be? I'm hoping it's just what I've been eating, but I really don't know. I've recently moved to southern California and have not yet found a doctor. Any responses would be appreciated!.
