I've had my pouch since december and i'm starting to see the potential. I have had some trouble with pouchitis though. 4 times now I have been succesfully treated with ciprofloxacin, and while taking the antibiotics things are great. Low number of BM's but most importantly much reduced buttburn and pain. Also the feeling of a pouch about to explode is nearly gone when im taking the pills. I guess thats how it is supposed to be when the pouch is not sick.
The thing is, I spoke with my doctor today since iv'e been of ciprofloxacin for a few weeks, and things are already starting to go bad. He told me that some experience difficulties with pouchitis espacially in the early stages after getting the pouch. But from what I've read in here, it seems like people keep struggeling and over time the antibiotics stops working. I guess I'm just looking to see if there are someone out there, where the pouchitis have stopped to come back suddenly?
So now I'm back on ciproflocacin 2 pills a day for 2 weeks, and then I'm supposed to take one pill every second day to see if that can hold it back. Maybe someone in here have tried this as well?
