Hi all, I have been feeling great for the past 2-3 weeks. I am now 9 weeks post j pouch surgery. I went out this weekend and decided to treat myself to fried buffalo wings (spicy) and chicken nachos. I know this wasn't the wisest food choice but I felt good and wanted to eat it!!! So, I felt fine after eating it and decided to eat flamin' hot chips today. There was no pain but I haven't really had much spice in my food for a couple months now. So, all day today, I have been emptying my bag which has been full of this reddish/orangish output. I remember how red gatorade turned my stool a similar color but this has been going on all day long! Is it because of the spice or the fried foods??? I am starting to get concerned as I have been emptying this type of output all day. Does anyone know what else this could be? Should I see my doc?
