The first week of Takedown, I was not taking it easy like I should have. I did leg lifts and my stoma wound opened up resulting in wound separation. Water/soap got in there from the shower too and it infected the area. The infection spread to the whole small intestine including the pouch. I had to go back to the hospital for bowel rest and antibiotics for a couple of days. It was my fault though lol. Ever since then I have not gone back to the hospital for my pouchy.
I only had minor issues since then like if I eat the wrong thing or do not drink enough water I get constipated, but that is only a couple of times a year thank goodness. Nothing major.
How about you???
oh man that sucks. i never had any complications like that but i just found out i have pouchitis and cuffitis. its pretty common though and not as painful as UC.
