It's true that those who feel great don't post here. I have been feeling really great but just popped on to see if there was anything about butt burn that might be helpful for me.
I'm very, very happy with the pouch. Quality of life is great compared with having UC. I feel normal and healthy. Only when I have to go to the bathroom a few times in the evening do I think about having a pouch.
Most people don't have the issues you see here. I think they are just concentrated here. My doctor told me that most of her pouch patients check in once a year and don't have issues.
