Reply to "Uceris"

I haven't heard anyone talk about it so just looked it up. It looks like a steroid. Do you use it for UC?

Pouchitis isn't usually treated like UC. I see people rotating antibiotics to control pouchitis on here.

Cuffitis is treated with Mesalamine and/or Hydrocoritzone which are medications used to treat UC in suppository form. This is because if you have the most popular double stapled j-pouch surgery there is a small percentage of us that get UC, called cuffitis, in the cuff of our j-pouches. I've read it's 4% of UC j-pouchers. It seems like more on here as this is a support site and people post here when they are having problems.
