There are at least two sessions that might be of particular interest to some folks here. This Friday, Sept. 16 at 2 PM (Eastern Daylight Time) is a 20-minute session called “When a Pouch Patient Can’t Poop.” On Saturday, Sept. 17 at 9 AM EDT is “Medical Treatment of Acute and Chronic Pouchitis.”
Thanks for the heads-up! I registered for this. I can't go to all of it, but I think it could be interesting if the doctors don't use too much jargon. It seems like it's supposed to be doctors talking to other doctors, so I'm prepared for some jibberish. I wish they were recording it so I could re-watch, pause and look up terms that are unfamiliar....
It's a rare medical conference that permits patients to attend, so it's not dumbed-down. They do record, or did last time. The link from that recording was posted here and I imagine this one will be as well.
sara marie --nor did i get one. i think they will send a link prior to the event. sorry, but don't recall logistics from a year ago! if i don't get a link by thursday i'll contact them and post info. glad you are watching as interesting to hear discussions. honesty i think they should have a patient participate. jan
The jargon was pretty thick during yesterday’s sessions, but a few slides seemed like they might be of interest to some folks here. The first slide lists symptoms and diagnoses associated with pouch emptying problems, and the second lists possible treatments. The third slide is a bit confusing, but speaks to various circumstances around periodic pouchoscopy intervals.
