Pouchitis is a non-specific inflammation of the internal pouch, ie j pouch, kock's pouch or BCIR. Symptoms of pouchitis vary but include: increased frequency, watery output and sometimes blood in the stools, fever and/or a feeling of urgency. Most cases can be treated with a short course of antibiotics.
I have had an ileostomy for 31 years now due to UC.
