Hello Everyone -

I am having significant emptying issues of the j pouch having my jpouch for seven years, now.  Has anyone else have had this issue?  If so, besides the exercises what else is there left to do?  I am on Humira injections weekly. Wondering if I can start to wean off of them weekly and that may help me out - with dr.'s permission, of course?

I generally cannot empty my pouch completely if I am constipated. 1tsp pysillum husk in morning and evening keep it tight enough to hold easy and loose enough to help it pass. I couldnt do imodium in past as it gets me heavily constipated and I cant clear the pouch without applying too much pressure. The general rule I've had is if I pass gas and the end of a bm my pouch feels empty , if the gas gets stuck in I may soon end up in the toilet again.
