Hey all,


Today is my half year jpouch anniversary. I had a pouchoscopy a few weeks ago. Doctor said that the pouch looks like it has very mild inflammation which would not account for my symptoms.


I am currently having 2-3 BM's nightly, with 10 or more during day. Leakage. Lots of gas. Headaches and nausea every so often.


Pathology report says severe chronic inflammation and active pouchitis. How can there be this discrepancy?


Surgeon said that pouchitis might happen but will be mild and easy to treat... here I am with what may be chronic pouchitis.

"Chronic Pouchitis" from the pathologist's point of view isn't the same as what's visible, and it especially isn't necessarily the same as what you experience. Have you had any pouchitis treatment? Have you ever gotten your pouch into what felt like a healthy state, at least for a few days?


If I couldn't get a good night's sleep I'd try a course of Cipro, regardless of how the pouch looked. But I don't get (or at least haven't gotten) any major side effects from most antibiotics.
