I have not been on this site for quite some time, as I have been feeling pretty good.
About 2 months ago I began getting symptoms of pouchitis, very slight at first. Had to find a new doctor as I moved from Michigan to Florida.
Had a scope done and there were no signs of pouchitis. But biopsy came back as positive for pouchitis and I am now on 30 days of Flagyl 1500 mg per day. It is kicking my butt(pun intended).Lol. I'm allergic to Cipro
Has anyone else had pouchitis show only on biopsy?
How common is it to be on antibiotics for 30 days? It was prescribed for 7 to 10 last few times I had pouchitis.
A little history....had my j pouch surgery in May of 1985. I am 62 years old. Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 1979.
Just trying to understand a little more of what is going on with me.
