Possible pouchitis? Been in hospital since Sunday after dehydration from a day of diarrhea (& some vomiting as it progressed). Kidneys functioning again properly now from 9 bags of fluid. After being better for over a day and eating (with more formed output) I had breakfast yesterday and had stomach pains from then on and back to just water stool. I have an unsettled scratchy pain in lower tummy (guessing it's pouch!) feel a little sick and gassy. I'm in a small hospital with no experience of pouches, with my surgeon 1.5 hours away. Does it sound like pouchitis, or still cuffitis? (Diagnosed with cuffitis last April, and had unexplained sick feeling for months now, but pouch been ok except for some straining... but not had pouchitis before and had pouch 10 years). Is it best to get myself to a bigger hospital, since so far they have said it is a virus/food poisoning and not even considered pouch. Was in isolation but now been put on a bowel ward... Just concerned about whether small hospitals can treat this as effectively, as not sure whether to let them check pouch with camera if not done it before.
I have an appointment next Thursday with a pouch clinic where my surgeon is, so could discharge myself if I can keep liquids down to then and just put up with the constant pain. Just worried it could be something more serious... And can't do another 9 hour wait in A&E for a drip!
Can an they treat pouchitis without checking first with camera, just as a way of finding out if it is that?
When my body gets Ill it does it very quickly, so is making me anxious!!
Thank you for reading and for any thoughts anyone has!
