So I just had a very failed attempt at an antidepressant that gave me nearly 3 weeks of very urgent, painful, frequent diarrhea that really irritated The pouch. Thankfully I’m off that med now and for the last few days the pouch is back to functioning normally.
However right inside the pouch, and I mean right inside not even up to the cuff, is super swollen and irritated still. I take a suppository nightly and last night it was so swollen I couldn’t even get it past the opening of the anus. There’s not really any pain with it except I can’t get a good empty. It seems to seal shut after I just get a little bit out so how I’m clustering, which I’ve never done before.
Anyway I have a message into my doc but while waiting to hear back is there anything I can try to get the swelling down? I’m hoping it’s just irritated from the trauma and will calm down with time but in the meantime it’s no fun. Also freaking me out it could be something serious, although I don’t know what that would be? Pouch was functioning perfectly before I started this antidepressant so I’m pretty upset at myself for even trying it.
