I had my pouchoscopy today and my gi told me my results in my foggy State Of mind. My pouch isnt inflammed but The remaining part Of my rectum is. Im assuming thats cuffitis. He gave me cipro and canasa suppositories. Is cuffitis chronic or does it usually get cleared up from The medications?

The meds should help you. It can become chronic is some cases, but it is usually very treatable with canasa. You may eventually need to move to a maintenance dose (say once nightly 2 times a week or whatever you GI suggests) for a bit before stopping it entirely. If you are not getting relief, they can presrcibe anucort suppositories (which has a steriod in it). They are reluctant to do this though as they do not want you on it for a long period of time due to thinning of your tissues in the cuff/anastomosis area. The first line of treatment that is most benign is canasa.
