I too had the Jpouch surgeries and chronic pouchitis/ a few Cuffitis and two months a go, now Crohns. I have an annoying stricture too. I am on Remicade, Pred, Methotrexate, folic acid, loperamide, mesalamine. More drugs than I’ve been on when I had my colon. It’s easy to feel down and depressed. I didn’t expect to be at square one after everything I went through to get rid of my colon. All I can do is accept it and move on with my life and do the best I can with what I have.
