Hi everyone, long story short I was diagnosed with UC March 2014, a few months later it become very severe, meds stoped working and I was always in a flare. Fast forward to April 7th 2015, had a total colectomy step 1 of 3 for me, may 24th I graduate high school (yay), June 3rd I had my 2nd surgery, loop ileo and creation of jpouch, July 30th 2015 I had my reversal. I had LOTS of complications with the first two surgeries so hopefully that was the end of the that.
Anyways, a few days after my take down and I have a partial blockage. Made it through that and I'm just having some problems with holding it in/leakage. Hopefully it gets better over time.
I would just like to know if any of you could give me advice on being in college with a jpouch. Snacks I should keep in my dorm, food to eat/avoid, medicine, vitamins, precautions I should be taking etc. just really any thoughts and tips you've got to offer send it my way! I'm really nervous to be leaving my mom and living two hours away with my jpouch, just want a smooth transition and freshman year. Thanks in advance!
