Hello I am new to the community and am so glad something like this is out there.
I am 33 mother of two daughters and a nurse from ohio.
In my childhood I always had bowel problems and my brother was born with hershbrungs disease.
As a young adult I was dx with the same.
in 2004 I had a total colectomy and was not given a ostomy at that time.
Both of my daughter were already born at this time.
This past february 1 I was having severe abd pains and was taken to the Er and was taken to emergency surgery.
My small bowel and part of my rectum had ruptured and they placed a ileostomy.
I was told it could be reversed in 3 months.
May 19 I had it reversed.
I have been having some problems the last week and just thought I would poke around and ask some questions.
I am having slight blood in my stool, when I go its very little and watery.
He placed a J pouch.
I have also been having some pain and muscle spasms in my abd and my rectum.
I need to be better on diet control and nutrition was my least fav subject in nursing shool.
Does anyone know what helps, or hurts to eat.

If you have jpouch you might get more responses by visiting I have a jpouch and blood from time to time is normal. Constant is not. Once recovered you shouldn't need a special diet but adaption to the pouch can take months.
