Hi everyone and anyone that can make a suggestion.
I am having terrible abdominal pain in my pouch and I am thinking it's pouchitis. At least it's similar to previous episodes of pouchitis I have had. I am taking cipro however, it's not helping at all.
I am due to see the doctor at the end of the week. We just moved so this is a new dr and I can't just all and say, hey, this is what I think, can you prescribe something? I am not sure I can hold out for the appointment the pain is so overwhelming. It's not constant either. The sensation is to me that it's like I can feel the pressure and sense that I need to go to the bathroom and when I get there to go, it's not as much relief as I had hoped. The pain comes and goes.....and it's not all the time. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I am really unsure of what to do here. I am reading other posts and don't see anything similar. Maybe I am not giving enough information to help but I can tell you that I take deep breaths and then will move around and put my hand on my abdomen and it feels better. It's almost like I have a terrible gas bubble in there or a blockage but how would I know?
