I have had my J pouch for 2 years. I had a lot of complications with the surgery and had long term pouchitis straight after surgery for around 5 months but since then have had realatively little trouble and good function
But over the last few months it has felt like my pouch function is getting worse. I have gradually gone from going to the tiliet 6 times during the day and once at night to probably 10 durung the day and from 2 up to 4 or 5 times at night. The symptoms arent accute like when i have had pouchitis before and they come and go and it has took me a while to even realise it had gotten worse. I have urgency that comes and goes and isnt all the time, same with diarrhea. I am also now experiencing painful sores from going to the toliet a lot more i think. I rarely feel like i have emptied the pouch properly and often feel the need to go again quickly. I have a few days where it seems fine.
Do you think i could be experiencing a milder form of pouchitis or something else?
Thanks for any advice
