I have a Jpouch 18 years. I’ve been doing pretty well with a few bouts of pouchitis. For a week I’ve been constipated but going a little. I’ve been so nervous about using a fleet Enema. I really found your post so interesting. Do you suggest water over the saline? I guess I was afraid of hurting the pouch, but seems like a lot of people are doing it.
Kathy, don’t use the irritating solution that comes in the Fleet’s bottle - definitely replace it with water of whatever temperature you like. The stock solution is intended to force the muscular rectum (which we don’t have) to empty.
