Just diagnosed with very mild pouchititis. I believe I've been living with it for at least several years already, it doesn't cause much urgency or frequency... It's been 7 years since my last pouchoscopy and finally made it in.
Anyways, after the exam I was under the impression I would take 1 week of flagy and 1 week of cipro for a total of two weeks. However upon reading the bottles, it says take cipro for first week of every month and flagly third week of every month. My last doctor, years ago now, just had me do two weeks of one or the other. But I guess one week on, one week off of two types is another method?
So I take it I'm expected to permanently take antibiotics now, based on description of EVERY month, or perhaps there will be a follow up in a month and it will be decided to continue or not?? Still awaiting biospy results so I'm thinking I will get a notice to schedule follow up once I receive those results.
Just didn't feel like I've reached the point of permanent antibiotics already, since it's been about 4-5 years since I've even taken any.
