im in the 9 percent group that goes 10-15 times a day in a 24 hour period. I am still taking mesalamine at the lowest dose at which enables me to function and the urgency is not there, while the frequency is. Otherwise, it was total mayhem with regards to the inflammatory process. Things have calmed down to a manageable extent. This all evolved later on with me. I had easier years when my pouch was younger. Now comming close to 20 year mark as a jpoucher & veteran living with a subtotal colectomy.
While i have accepted my situation long ago, the reality of it is less than ideal.
without the mesalamine i would be bonkers literally from a mental standpoint in addition to the physical standpoint.
