Hi Everybody! It has been awhile since I have posted anything but I love this site and it has a lot of helpful information for us j-pouchers. I have a few questions. I have had antibiotic resistant chronic pouchitis for quite a few years and my doctor at Mayo asked me if I had thought about having my pouch taken out. I would love to hear from anybody that has their pouch removed and hear your thoughts about going back to a ileostomy/colostomy. I also have been struggling with anxiety for the past 3 years which has been a completely new problem for me. Do alot of pouchers also struggle with anxiety, and does one cause the other or is it independent? My GI told me that for some reason their seems to be a connection between bowel problems and emotional issues. I also was diagnosed with Celiac disease this summer and wonder if not absorbing nutrients can contribute to anxiety/depression. I would really appreciate any input, it is so wonderful to talk to people who struggle with the same issuesSmiler
