Pouchitis with possible Chron's

Just had a sigmoidoscopy and like the last one 2 years ago, there was definitely pouchitis and some inflammation "higher up" that led the doctor to think I could possibly also have Chron's (which I had been aware happens to "lucky" j-ouchers sometimes). Since the Cipro and Flagyl have worked whenever I've had the flares, the Chron's has not been definitively diagnosed. 

Was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, and if a 5-ASA drugs worked in helping you keep in remission from the pouchitis/possible Chron's flares? For the past year I've had the pouchitis become more frequent and more frequent (whereas in years previous since the surgery in 2005 in was pretty infrequent) til now where I have to take the course of antibitoics with a few weeks of getting off the last course.
