i had ipaa surgery in early 1990’s at mayo clinic Rochester, MN Three pouchdilations since then and some pouchitis issues, stool leakage ( immodium suggestion has helped) I am feeling an immense feeling of fullness and bloating. Tightness around abdomen. As anyone experienced this or maybe nothing to do with pouch....
Yes I did when I needed to have a dilation. Are your bms getting smaller, and you get full feeling very quickly ?
Yes . I am trying probiotic drink kombucha and prilosec tomorrow. I am hoping not to not need a dilation. My last three were horribly painful afterward Thank you for replying
Myeyna, did you have them under sedation by your surgeon. Mine were fine after. He advised self dilation after.
Yes I did l My first one in Minnesota was not bad. The doctor in san antonio and then my home town was extremely painful after I woke up. I just dont think these drs had done them enough😕
I swear that area was numb for days for me. I guess that's okay because it didn't hurt.
Kombucha will leave you even more bloated due to the carbonation and most are basically packed with sugar especialy since sugar is used during its brewing/fermentation.
