How to reduce frequent BMs with jpouch?

Posted Jun 26 2009 5:31pm

Hey Readers,

We just got this email from Tom, and he is new to seeking online support to figure out the complication he is dealing with.  Could you all take a peak at his concern and see if you have any insight.  Also, we encourage our readers to post their questions/concerns at because that is a thriving discussion board tha can offer great insight as well.

My J Pouch has been in place since 9/2005.  I immediately started having problems with the number of bowel movements I experienced on a daily basis – sometime numbering 20 – 25.  My Dr. tried a number of drugs to “slow down” my system but nothing helped.  I have seen a nutritionist only to be told after two contacts that she couldn’t help me.  To this day I continue to have 12 – 18 bowel movements a day.  I am currently undergoing a physical exam to see whether or not there are any other contributing factors to my frequency problem.  Needless to say, I am suffering from this problem.
Has someone who “had” a similar problem and beat it or severely reduced the daily number of movements.
