I had the 3 step J-Pouch procedure starting in July 2010 with the take down in Janurary 2011. I managed to hit just about every stumbling block possible (infection, cellulitis, abcess, adhesions, bowel obstruction, stoma herniation, nacrotic bowel, pouchitis). I am 5 weeks out now and seem to be doing much better, however I am having alot of trouble with skin breakdown. It is to the point that it keeps me awake most nights and I panic at the thought of a bowel movement. I have tried camlseptine, tucks pads, butt past and 2-4 showers/day but continue to suffer.
Does anyone have any advice.....please.
dx 2007 with UC, Tried asacol, predsone, remicade, imuran
