If you've had j pouch surgery, what you're experiencing might be what's known as pouchitis (ie inflammation of the internal pouch). It's a common side effect in those who have had j pouch surgery. You need to see your doc to get a definite diagnosis. Pouchitis is usually easily treated with a course of antibiotics.
btw, There's lots of recent posts lol the forum is getting at least 4 or 5 new posts a day at the moment :)
I have had an ileostomy for 31 years now due to UC.
