You are welcome my dear! And yeah definitely! NSAIDS can cause pouchitis unfortunately and it can irritate the pouch. Many doctors recommend we do not take it as a J-poucher. I take it anyway (OOPS LOL) NSAIDS are the only thing that works for my period cramps unfortunately. I know I need to look at other options though. In the past when I took NSAIDS, it made my pouch bleed a lot too. I take NSAIDS with a meal now or with food and I have not seen any blood since I have been doing that. I would still recommend not to take NSAIDS though.
I am glad you were not drinking! I am happy you had lots of Greek Yogurt too, I eat that everyday without fail, that is good for IBD folks! Its on sale for Buy One Get One Free at Publix until Thursday
Oh wow, I know how that feels tho, I suffer from headaches and cramps with my period and NSAIDS are sometimes the only choice, I didn't know it could be so bad for the pouch, drs always say try not to take NSAIDs but don't specify why. Thanks for the input and will definitely add the yogurt to my daily diet!
