Can someone tell me the symptoms of pouchitis. I am feeling extremely weak (way more so than usual) the last 4 days and no energy, low fever and stomach pains. I started going a little more than usual today but hard to tell just yet if frequency is up.

Thank you.

Those symptoms could be an indication of pouchitis. You probably need to give your doctor a call and run your symptoms by her/him.

On the other hand, you're early in the process of your new plumbing and sometimes it takes a while to get energy back. So maybe part of what you're experiencing is normal and part may (or may not) be pouchitis. Good answer, huh? I'm sorry I don't have a more definitive answer. I hope things start turning around for you.

hard to say those symtoms could be various other things besides pouchitis and not related to pouch at all....i think you need to see how you are in a few days to see what develops.. pouchitis has so many different symtoms..i suffer from it for past 6 years and controlwith antibiotics but in my case never had weakness or fever. big time pain from extreme irratation,burning feeling when going..not feeling fully emptied when i go to bathroom are my telltale signs..

My symptoms with pouchitis include weakness, fever, increased frequency, and sometimes blood. I don't get the fever or bleeding until the pouchitis is getting more severe. It is usually just increased frequency and some pain.

I would go on a light or liquid diet to give it some time to rest. If things don't improve, then call your doctor.
