I am out of town and am having a flair-up. Any suggestions for dealing with this situation? I know rest and diet are essential but am not always to get enough of both. I am on cipro and that helps but until I am back on my own turf in another week, I don't see much relief.

Not sure what sort of flare up you are referring to?
Pouchitis. Probably best thing is rest and meds. The meds I can handle but I've always been a hard charger and I hate sitting around.
All I need for pouchitis is an antibiotic that works. Once I'm on the right one I'm back to 100% within a day or two.
I can relate to that; I hate sitting around as well. Actually, I like sitting around when it is my choice and involves a good book! But when I am forced, it is not fun. Nevertheless, rest is what you need.
Also the correct antibiotic, and try and make sure you are eating healthy and don't get dehydrated; it just makes everything worse.
Hope you get relief soon.
