I'm having my takedown either 1/19 or 1/26 (YAY!) and want to go into it with as much info as possible. For those of you with a J-pouch, do you suffer from any "butt burn?" If so, how do you deal with it? I've heard either baby wipes or hemerrhoid cream/wipes from other people. So far, that's my biggest fear, especially since I've had such a hard time with skin irritation with the loop ileo. Thanks to anyone for answering!
