Reply to "Pouchitis?"

I developed my only case of pouchitis right after surgery. I may be way off base with this but I attribute it to the liquid diet which contained alot of  sugar (juice, jello, and pop cycles).  I had a diverting ileostomy for a time later on and with that take down I ate broth, yogurt,  thin oatmeal and probiotics. No pouchitis. It could all be chance but it seems reasonable to me that a 'clean' bowel filled with sugar would develop an imbalance of bacteria. it cleared up with antibiotics. My diet continues to be no/low sugar and starches. Hope you get feeling better. Who needs pouchitis with the rest of the stress in the world. xo
