I had my takedown surgery 4 months ago and things have been difficult.
The first month I was going 25x a day. The second month 20x a day. Then around 15-20x a day the 3rd month.
I almost always have urgency and I have occasional blood in my stool.
We did a scope and there was no pouchitis. He did see some inflamation in the cuff and assumed it might be cuffitis.
My doctor prescribed me cipro for 2 weeks which definitely helped. Dropped BM down to around 8-12x a day with much less urgency.
After the two weeks of cipro was completed the urgency and blood came right back and I was right back up to 15-20x a day.
Has anyone had a similar experience. I'm worried my pouch didn't take and i've got chronic cuffitis or something similar.
