Thanks for the responses.
I do think I sit in the mild category, ie. its more like discharge tinted with fecal matter, rather than being full-on pouch output coming out of the vagina.
I'm yet to discuss treatment options with my doc, but like you CJB, I don't want to risk my functioning pouch. How long have you managed with it? I do wonder if left untreated is it likely to get worse?
I guess I can discuss this all with my doc. Thanks again for the info.
