I am writing this post because I am curious what is considered normal BMs for jpouchers.

I have had a jpouch since 1984, and I have been told that it takes me approximately 80 minutes to digest what I eat. Over the years I believe this has been extended a little bit (due to pouch maturity and pouch changes).

I still encounter certain foods for which I do not digest (such as certain greens in salads). 

I was wondering how long it takes for these undigested foods to leave the body. In my case, it can take 48-72 hours. Is this the same for others?

I would appreciate hearing back your experiences.

Be well during this pandemic and take care of yourself!
