Well I have a J pouch for the last 3 1/2 years. Well, I get urgency, the moment I eat something. I feel like going to the toilet. Otherwise, I can control it for quite some time. Your post does not give any information as to when you had the reversal/take down. Normally, it takes about
six to eight months for pouch adaptation, during which the number of motions comes down. Has the doctor suggested you kegel exercise to prevent urge to rush. It is very simple exercise. Something as you have to stop your pee. So far as diet is concerned, even I am looking for some one to suggest me good protein diet with less residue. Can you digest chocolates, health drinks, diet supplements, fresh fruits.
Well I am sure you would get lot of help out here on HW. In any case, you may also try out on J pouch.org.
