Ileostomy created 7/15/14. I have not had the reattatchment surgery yet, but my ileostomy diverts about 10-20% so my pouch is still a little "active." Recently I developed a washed out feeling for 2 days, followed by what feels like burning in the bottom inside of my rectum, & some pink tinged discharge. The surgeon did a rectal X-ray with contrast. He didn't see any pouchitis but he ordered cipro 500 mgx10 days because he wants to rule it out. It's very painful & I don't think it's "butt burn!" The burning feels INTERNAL.
It's all new to me. Does this sound like pouchitis? Is it painful like this?
