Hi everyone! Just wanted to come on here and give a 3 yr update since I first got my j-pouch. It’s hard to find positive stories on here so I wanted to be sure to leave a good update! I’m doing great. Definitely had some bumps along the way (in the beginning) but overall I’m very happy with my j-pouch. I’m not on any meds, never have had pouchitis, have 3-4 bms a day, eat whatever (except beans) and can do any activities I want. My only issue is I do have some slight troubles emptying my pouch due to pelvic floor dysfunction, but honestly it’s gotten a lot better on it’s own as my body adjusts to having the pouch and it’s really not bothersome anymore! That’s really about it.
Hope everyone else is doing well! 😊
