chronic pouchitis with new symptoms
 Login/Join 
posted
My 15yr old daughter has had a j-pouch for almost a year now and has had chronic pouchitis most of this time. This last week she has been complaining of extreme rectal pain and a decrease in bowel movements during the day and an increase at nighttime. she is also experiencing fatigue, weight loss and mouth sores. We saw her GI today and he wants to do a scope to see what is going on. If that is normal then he wants to do a MRI because he is worried that there may be a problem with the pouch itself or surrounding area. I am worried because she has never had this pain in the rectum and usually has an increase in bowel movements with her pouchitis. Has anyone else experienced any of this? I would appreciate any thoughts or ideas, thank you!

There could be many things that cause this and I think the scope with biopsies and testing of stool samples will help diagnose what is wrong and what treatment plan to follow. I hopw she is feeling better soon.

I hope they figure out what is wrong so she can start treatment ASAP.
