Just had a routine scoping today with my pouch. No symptoms to report that arent 'normal' for me (no blood, no ulcers, no change in frequency etc). I watch the process on the screen as i always do. certainly i couldnt see anything different. Doc said i had mild pouchitis and prescribed flagyl.
Im UK based btw, so dont neccessarily see the same doc everytime. I appreaciate he is still a highly trianed and qualified profesional, but he just seemed a bit quick with the prescription pad for my liking...
1) Would there be any merit in not taking the prescription and seeing if i get any symptoms first?
2) If i do take the antibiotics, how badly is it going to affect the gut. I take probiotics daily and will buy a second type of probiotic for the duration of the course too if i do that them.
my diet is completely normal with no restrictions but i will up the vegetable count for the forseeable too
Any thoughts appreciated :_)
