I have had a good streak of health for near 10 years and now have ran into a bout of pouchitis (maybe the move from FL to MN? ). I normally have responded well to using Flagyl by its self but this time it did not impact anything. I then went and had a scope w/ they said I had moderate to severe pouchitis and put me on Cipro for 2 wks. some things improved but still had more than normal nightly trips to bathroom and also leaking while asleep. After the cycle ended things started to get worse 3 days later. Gas that seemed to flow through small intestine to the bottom of my pouch/bottom (painful to try and manage it w/o feeling an explosion out my bottom). I contacted my doctor and they said they would start up another round of Cipro for 3 weeks (same mg amount).
it has been 3 days and the painful nighttime gas train is starting up again. Should I be requesting another antibiotic to run w/ Cipro? My original doctor in AL who preformed the surgery would put me on Levoquin and Flagyl.I have never been on Cipro till now. any input would be appreciated. I am starting to second guess the care I am getting and considering going to the Mayo Clinic.
