Reply to "Recovery from Jpouch removal"

Sounds normal. It's the same thing that happened with me.  

I was in 11 days post op. 

My out put has never been solid. Semi solid maybe.  But you may want to find a way to make it more liquid and easier to pass.  

It was still sensitive around the whole area at six weeks. But at eight weeks I went back to work. 

I'm close to a year and a half now and it's smooth sailing. 

Sounds like you did the right thing.  I know I did getting rid if it. 

As for pushing gas out. Well.  I can push out other stuff at times.  Sometimes just bending over pushes stuff out. I noticed that in the shower as time went on. 

Gas doesn't bother me. I have it. But if it bothers you watch what you eat.  I'm gonna eat. So if gas is a byproduct I'll deal with it.   

You're  sore because alot was done in there. I was sore for a few months but it dissipates. 

Welcome to a new or back to life. It's not perfect but it beats the hell out of fighting a pouch that won't agree to work with you. 

I don't know if any of this is any help to you. But give it time.  You seem happy.  It definitely gets better.  I'm proof it does.  I forget about it most of the time now.  Never in my mind did I think that I would.  But I am very happy with it.  Not in love with it but as I have said before. I love what it has done. Ended my struggles.  

I wish you the best.
