I thought some of you might find this interesting. Last year I started having problems with pouchitus that I could not get to go into remission. I could get it to get better but still have some leaking at night. I was on a steady regimen of VSL #3 and antibiotics only when it would get really bad. In November I had a serious blockage that lead to more adhesion surgery and a resection of a spot that was closing up. Of course during that time I was not eating, just on iv fluids. Even had the dreaded ng tube a couple of days. No IV antibiotics were administered just pain meds. My pouchitus completely went away! Surgery was in December. Still no signs of it coming back! I have gone back to my regular diet pretty much eating whatever I want. and back to running and doing Yoga. Also have not gone back to taking the VSL because I was only taking it because of the pouchitus. I have no idea what made it go away but have a feeling it has to do with no food for several days. Would love to hear some of your thoughts on this!
Now if I could just figure out how to stop growing scar tissue!
Have a blessed day everyone!
