Have had ongoing issues lately with pouch. After 11yrs this past year on and off pouchitis stricture and partial blocks. Went on antibiotics awhile ago which did not help. Doc suggested Entocort which is a mild steroid. Have been on for almost 3 wks. Thought it was ok but last few days no matter what food having cramping and hard to empty pouch. So used irrigation tube which helps a bit. Tonight lots of cramping and tube had blood in it after a bit. Never had that. Thinking stricture but not sure as tube will go in.
Any thoughts?

The issue might be a stricture at the inlet to the pouch. Have you had an examination of the pouch lately?  I had various issues over the years which included your problems as well as the inlet issue tried entocort but the only thing to work for me was pred. which set me up for other problems but I would go with a look inside to start off.
