I needed some advice from the friendly forum as over the past week or so I have been really really struggling with my pouch! I have had my j pouch active for around 20 months and all has been very well in those months (minus a few minor setbacks!)
It started off with getting symptoms of frequency and cramping around the middle of my abdomen, then increased frequency at nighttime, extreme night sweats, fever, fatigue and nausea. My output from j pouch has turned to complete diarrhoea which is almost always green (sorry for the TMI). I have had bloods done which show slightly elavated CRP levels which apparently could mean I have some sort of an infection? Yesterday and today my stool seems to have bulked up quite a bit but I’m struggling to pass anything as I feel a stabbing pain in my rectum accompanied with pretty strong stomach cramping right before I need to go.
I am keeping up my water intake and resting as much as I can but I need some advice on this as I am really struggling and the low grade fever doesn’t seem to be passing. It seems to be particularly worse in evenings when my fever gets worse, I get shivers and generally feel quite awful.
I welcome any and all advice. Thanks in advance.
