Ever since I got my J pouch in 2012, I've had this annoying issue with peanuts. If I eat a small amount of peanuts, or some peanut butter, I'm ok. But if I eat more than a handful of peanuts, my butt gets really itchy when they come out the other end. And if I eat a lot of peanuts, then it makes my butt hurt really bad. Last time I ate about 1/3 of a large container of honey roasted peanuts and the pain the next day was so bad I didn't want to get out of bed.
The weird thing, though, is that this doesn't always happen. It's been happening more and more often in the past 8 years, but there have also been plenty of times in the past 8 years when it didn't happen. But I think the times when it doesn't happen tend to be if I had a dose of Metamucil or a bunch of other foods with the peanuts that have absorbed and diluted them.
I never had anything like this happen when I had my colon. And I never have any other weird symptoms when I eat peanuts. My mouth doesn't itch or tingle or hurt, or anything. And it never did. Is it possible that's I've been a little allergic this whole time and just never knew it? Or could this be a new allergy?
Or are most people sensitive to peanuts in this way and they just don't know it because the irritating bits get absorbed by the time it gets to their colons?
Do any other J pouchers have this issue with peanuts?
