I am currently being hospitalized after not being able to pass BM for 4 days...CT scans and barium test are revealing contradicting results - except that there’s a consensus for pouchitis which alone still can’t explain why I can’t pass BM. So I’m thinking that I may have either have a twisted pouch or pouch is folding folding when trying to pass BM...not sure that the pouchoscopy scheduled for tomorrow or perhaps a defecography would help with a twisted pouch diagnosis ??? and wanted to ask anyone who had to deal with a twisted pouch diagnosis the following questions:
1- How were you diagnosed with it?
2- Was it ever resolved and if so, how?
3- How long have you had to deal with that issue;
I really don’t want to go back to an ileostomy but if nothing else shows on the tests tomorrow - I fear that there might be little options left...
So I’ve been on the hospital liquid diet to calm my pouch down for a couple of days and although I’m happy to report that I can at find sleep at last, my stomach feels terribly crappy... Anyways, I suspect that I might have to be on a liquid diet for a while and I’m looking for suggestions for a nutritious food powder blend that would help cover my intake in proteins and minerals. Are there brands you would recommend?
