Reply to "Success Stories Please :)"

I am 33 years old, diagnosed with FAP in 2005 with both J-pouch surgeries in 2006. With regular annual checkups, I have had very minimal problems with my pouch or my lifestyle. With use of medication, I can get my bowel movement frequency down to as little as 2 per day with a 'bad' day being 6-7. Diet can influence this greatly. The only real problem I have experienced with the pouch is the rare occurence of leakage. Again, diet can have a great influence on this as well. Stuff like fruit juice, alcohol, greasy food, etc. can lead to 'problems' so I avoid this stuff after 5:00-6:00pm. Overall, I have little to complain about. I've done as the doctors have told me to, keep up on preventative care, and eat right. Hope this qualifies as a "positive" J-pouch story. -Tim
