Reply to "J pouch and athletics"

Ytcrockpot, very good article about Michael Mauti.  I read further about him.  He eventually left pro-football and it looks like he is currently involved in working in the area of helping people cope with IBD issues and cannabis/medical marijuana.  

It’s interesting the number of people in competitive athletics who are dealing with IBD, j-pouches or ostomies.  I enjoy hiking, biking and taking long walks, hopefully will snowshoe this winter, but not really fond of the cold.  I did do some hikes with my ostomy and hiked Mt Washington with my j-pouch.  I think my biggest issue has been making sure I empty my pouch and take Lomotil if I don’t have access to a bathroom.  

I agree with you, Scott.  The best person to ask is your surgeon as to what sports may be best to participate in.
