Yeah I had it done, I went to Vegas a week after my surgery with a buddy and no real issues besides a little bit of pain obviously.
I did have a little bit of an episode 1 night where i was bleeding and it wouldn't stop, had to lie on my side for 2 hours with gauze in between my butt cheeks and hope it stopped, which it did. I think it helped me a lot. I can hold it for like 1-3 hours if I really need to, though it becomes VERY uncomfortable. I'm at 4-6 times per 24 hours if I eat healthy (salads, smaller meals) or 6-7 if I eat bigger meals and carbs. If you need the scraping done, don't worry.
Hi Bull101 I was reading a post by you from 2017 when you had your cuff scraped. What were your symptoms you were experiencing with your cuffitis. And Keith mentioned in a post the amount of cuff you were left with?. My gastro said I had inflammation in the last 5 cm. So is it UC there or cuffitis or is that the same thing.
