Hello, I’m in a bit of a pickle here.. I’m traveling and for the las 48 hours I felt an increase on my bowel movements, more gas, feeling like I wasn’t emptying fully (and straining because of this although I try not to because I think it can lead to more issues, I rather go more times than strain).
And today I saw a little bit of blood on a couple of my bowel movements. it stopped now it seems.
I’m a bit paranoid that it could be cuffitis because my rectum was in really bad shape when they removed it. I’m about 4 months post takedown. My recovery has been amazing. I eat what I want, I’ve drank tons on wine, diet varies how many times I go but I usually can sleep through the night and haven’t had pain/blockages/pouchitis or any issues, my doctors were super happy.
but now ive been traveling with my partner for about a month I’m on the other side of the world and had this symptoms made me super paranoid, I’m not on the best place to go to a clinic.
I will be more careful with diet and that on the next days see if it calms down but I’d like some input if anyone is feeling like either calming my nervs or advice me to go to a clinic and see a GI just in case (can cuffitis escalate badly if you don’t treat it?)
