I have pouchitis right now. Not happy. I have had diarrhea for six days in a row. I eat and soon the diarrhea starts. Some stomache pain, leakage, night time incontinence, insomnia. Spoke with my doctor this morning and she prescibed Cipro. I hope it works fast. I am getting weeker. I did some reading and a diet that is low in carbs, sugar and artificial sweeteners may be beneficial to stave off pouchitis. I will be changing my diet. My question for now is, do I treat the diarrhea or the pouchitis? The diets for both are mostly opposites. I have tried anti-diahrreal medication and not working.
If anybody can give me some insight to how long it took for Cipro to work for you, I welcome any information. I am frustrated and feel like my quality of life is poor.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
