I’m 9 years with my pouch. Had an amazing 8 years with no issues. I’ve had two small inflammation bouts that have caused major bleeding within the past year. One was due to Advil usage (stupid stupid stupid), one was due to an abcess operation I believe (it was just too coincidental. Had abcess drained Thursday, started bleeding Sunday).
Obviously I’m always having a small bit of inflammation in my pouch/cuff if it’s that sensitive. The first time there was inflammation in my pouch and cuff, this most recent one was just my cuff, doc said pouch looked phenomenal in the scope. My doctor wants to start me on stelara. I don’t want to start a drug like this when 95% of the time, I’m doing great. I’ve been researching more natural remedies to keep inflammation at bay. Does anybody have experience? Whether it be CBD oil, Apple vinegar, special diets, etc... I’ve kind of just lived life and haven’t restricted any diet or anything.
Thanks so much in advance.
