Just wanted to give some helpful info I recently found out. I suffered for over a year with leaking, gas escaping, and frequent trips to the bathroom to empty during the night. I found a great doctor in Los Angeles- Dr. Don Schiller, who placed me on antibiotics and recommended that I take Dr. Ohhiras probiotics 3 x a week. Changed my life! No thanks to my old Dr who called me paranoid and did nothing about the pouchitis.
