I'm roughly 14 months post takedown and still trying to get frequency below 10 in 24 hours. I've been battling chronic cuffitis though. Canasa helps with the bleeding and urgency but only slightly on the frequency. I'm also doing pelvic floor therapy. Fun times. It's amazing what we j-pouchers go through. I do miss my colon and the freedom once enjoyed when I was in remission. After 18 years of UC and surgeries/recoveries, I've now got 2 cm of cuff to deal with. Can't wait for the day--and I'm still optimistic--that my day won't be planned around having a bathroom nearby.
