Has anyone been left with chronic pain after jpouch surgery. I feel like most people on here haven't had to have much pain management after their surgeries. I feel like I was doing better last year with the pain decreasing a little but now this past year with blockages, an abcess that created three fistulas, strictures. It seems like one surgery after the next has made things worse and I'm in constant pain. I don't really have any comfortable position and obviously sitting due to the abcess and fistulas are a struggle. Am I the only one that is still taking pain meds this far along? I'm about two and a half years out of my take down. Thanks.
