About 3 years or so. When I had my scope a few months back the doctor said that my Crohn's was so much better he couldn't believe it. However, I guess my pouch didn't look great because he told me to take Augmentin for a month. Unheard of since usually he prescribes it for 10 days at most. I'm beginning to think that many I do have pouchitis and it's never gone away. Think I'm discouraged and tired of feeling exhausted and running back and forth to the bathroom all night.
