Just an update...I learned today that my pouchoscopy last week showed narrowing of the "anastomosis"...where the small intestine is attached to what's left of the rectum. This partially explains the many, many BMs...taking multiple bathroom trips to complete a BM. They performed an office visit "dilation" of the anastomosis to relieve this narrowing. An additional dilation is scheduled in about a month to ensure the anastomosis is not continuing to narrow. The narrowing makes it more difficult to complete a BM...did not expect this but thankful doctors know what to do.
I am soo happy you are at peace Maybe your bowel movements will decrease now
I thought I had the same thing you had but I do not at all. My pouch was normal. My multiple bms are just because lol.
