Have had my Jpouch since 1993 and have had issues every year with pouchitis but, ciproflaxin seems to keep it in check with no side effects for me. My main issue is having to dialate on a daily basis as the scar tissue over the years keeps closing down the opening. Scoping doesn't have a lasting effect either. I should mention that i am 69 yrs. old and still very active. I have my down days but, you have to keep fighting . These forums help and you see you're not in this situation by yourself...
