I know these questions are bit strange but:
 
1) Can you still have hemmeroids with a Jpouch?
 
2) Do you still get gas pains and/or break wind?
 
These questions came to me last night - don't know why but my mind was wandering again.

1. yes

2. Yes and No. Gas pain is fairly significant in the days right after surgery when the bacteria is recolonizing. After that it's just normal gas and no pain.
dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998

1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics

2000 lost all my B-12 stores and became anemic

2001 opted for j-pouch surgery- now living life med-free

So if I was to go in for surgery and have a bag and had lets say the 2 or 3 step, the gas would go into the bag then? If so, won't that make it swell? And after the take down once the bacteria recolonizes then the gas will be less? Sorry if I sound naive but I want to learn as much as I can about the odd little goodies that come with this type of surgery :)

Yes, gas goes in the bag and you release it when the bag swells.

After takedown your gas will be dependant upon what you eat; just like it is for those with healthy colons. Not necessarily more but not necessarily less.

People with ostomies can purchase pouches that have filters to keep the pouch from blowing up like a balloon.  The ones they use in the hospital/send you home with won't be that way, but you can ask for them.  Some filters are better than others and Hollister's NEW filter is the best I've found (it even works after laying down to sleep!!).

no odd questions are fine! i asked some seriously odd questions when i was considering surgery too, lol.
I have perm ileo, but after a few months when it got settled down, i had less gas, and dont really have alot at all now, eating certain things makes it worse though.
