Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum and I wanted to know if there's anyone out there that has had the ileoanal anastomosis operation done? If you have please reply to my post I have some questions that I can't seem to find the answer to. Thanks.

Thanks for replying to my post. I had the surgery back in November 2002. At the age of 3 I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, the only medicine that would control it was Prednisone. After too many years taking only that med my body got immune to it, so I only got worse. At the age of 22 when they did the Colonoscopy they realized that I was doing very bad and prone to get Cancer at any moment so I opted to get the surgery done. My surgery was done all in one step. It's been 6 years and a half and everything has been pretty good with the exception that my stool is water. I don't get the urgency of diarrhea but it's water. I just wanted to know if this happens to everyone or just me? I went back to the doctor and he had me take Imodium and it works but as soon as the effect is over I'm back to the way I was before. I would greatly appreciate any type of feed back.
Thanks!

Hi JR.  Welcome.  Most people on this forum have not had the surgery.  You might get a better response on the osotomy board or at jpouch.org.

Good luck!

Has it always been water or is this new? Are you having any pain?

It has been like this for quite some time now. I would say 2-3 years and I don't feel any pain.
