I had my take down 4 years ago, and for the last 3 days I’ve had an intense ache in my lower back/ bum/ top of my legs. Feels so heavy, and hurts to even walk. It seems to come on in the evening too. Passing stools is very painful, I already have fistulas and raw skin so butt burn is always there, but this is even worse than normal. Also don’t feel like it’s empty- almost like my anus is swollen and not letting everything out (sorry, but don’t know how else to explain it!)
Could it be pouchitis? Or is there something else?
