Reply to "Need a good article about pouchitis?"

If you had bleeding it was more likely to be cuffitis than pouchitis. Some docs do not describe the difference and consider it all the same. Pouchitis would not have gone away without treatment. But, like UC, cuffitis can wax and wane regardless of what you do. Mesalamine or hydrocortisone suppositories are the primary treatment for cuffitis, not antibiotics.
