Poucitis with BCIR?

I've had a J-Pouch since 2010 and it was doing incredible until about last April when I caught a virus that was followed by pouchitis. I've done Cipro, Rifaximin, Levaquin, etc. and all worked great initially but then about 5 or so days into it, they'd start failing. 

Recently, I bought up the idea of converting my pouch and several people advocated that I go to a BCIR. However, it seems like you can pouchitis with the BCIR too? Is this correct? The only reason I'd get rid of the J-Pouch is to escape pouchitis so I'm wondering now if this is a bad decision. Would seem a permanent ileostomy would be the only option that is 100% pouchitis safe. Do I have this right?
