Everyone goes into these surgeries at different ages, in different medical conditions, on meds, off meds, that is to say everyone's healing is uniquely their own experience.
I did have a jpouch and the first few weeks are rough and the first few months are not easy, but for the vast majority of pouches things improve so instead of thinking of weeks or months go day by day knowing you are gonna find foods that work and foods that don't. It is true though as I've seen it with my own eyes your body adapts and learns to absorb more moisture from food, seemingly thickening output, thank God.
I had a jpouch for a few years and I rarely if ever ate bananas and potatoes and actually had more issues with them. A rice, with meat and a easy to digest vegetable was my go to choice when my pouch was acting up. It is like colitis to the degree that some things work for one person and not the other.
If I were you, I would contact your surgeon and possibly ask about
some antibiotics. Otherwise in the meantime you can try pepto bismol which I had to take everyday if I wasn't on an antibiotic to make my pouch happy. Bi****h subsalicylate the ingredient in pepto bismol is a heavy metal and one theory is the heavy metal in it can kill some bad bacterias and certain Jpoucher users have had success and thus worth a try!
(Apparently B-I-S-M-U-T-H is a banned word.)
