Sorry I’m not about much right now, I’m getting over another bout of pouchitis and its knocked me quite a lot.
Pouchitis is when an internal pouch becomes inflamed. It is a common complication in people with an ileo-anal pouch or continent ileostomy.
Symptoms of pouchitis include:
diarrhoea, which is often bloody
a high temperature.
So after a trip to the hospital, I’m on a course of antibiotics called Ciprofloxacin that are definitely helping with the symptoms but are making me very dizzy and nauseous too. I’m also taking fluconazole to counteract against the dreaded thrush that I get with any antibiotics now.
I’m back at hospital on Tuesday for a scope and to reassess whether to keep going with the meds.
Sorry this is so brief but I’m struggling to put sentences together right now!
