Ok I tell you the story short: last octoberI developed itch around the anus, then at december I started to feel like I was losing something from the anus (mucus), and no pain at all. Then, in 2019, I had a long course of ciprofloxacine, 1 month, it helped very much because I began again to feel normal, I was super fit like I never were from months. Then, stopping the cipro, pouchitis come back again, but, this time, it arrived with anal pain. I slowly developed pain at the point that, in march, I had a visit from my surgeons. They said I have pouchitis and I have to take a longer course of ciproxin. I took ciproxin for 5 weeks, and again, I soon started to feel super, I was really really happy with my pouch, it began to work awesomely... Then after the 5 weeks, I had to take (according to the therapy) 1 week of vsl3, but, without positive effect, or even with negative, as I slowly begin to have diarrhea again. Then after this week I have to take Rifaximin, and again, no help at all. The worse part is that now I have again intense anal pain that I don't understand what is it. I find it difficult to sit. I find it difficult to walk. This make me really really depressed. I should take again ciproxin but I'm afraid this is becoming chronic. I'm trying potassium iodide, it seems to help the pouchitis but the pain, intense, and the itch, is still there.. I don't know what to do and my doctors are difficult to find.
