I have had my jpouch for 7 years and have not had an incident of pouchitis. I take one capsule of Flora Q per day. You can try other probiotics like Culturelle or PB8. I have taken those too at times. You might wander over to www.j-pouch.org and meet other fellow pouchers. There are only two of us on this board.
