Reply to "Managing Pain in an Opioid Crisis World"

While pain medication can reduce the discomfort you are having, it will not eliminate the cause.  I suggest that you get a second opinion from a doctor with lots of experience in treating J pouch problems.  Unfortunately, doctors like your PCP often recommend an ileostomy without considering the quality of life that their patient desires.  The two alternatives to a conventional ileostomy are the K pouch and the similar BCIR, both of which do not require having an external bag and both have high success rates.  I would definitely stay away from “street” drugs due to lack of quality control.
