Question: I have antibiotic dependent Pouchitis. Cipro works for me but my doctor has me trying Cortifoam alternating with Cipro on two-week cycles. He told me try try every other day cycles next but I find that it isn't working well. Is it okay to stay on Cipro long Term? Should I try biological, and if so, which one?

I had a total colectomy in 1997 at age 41. I have an ileostomy bag for 6 month s then they did J-pouch surgery. I've had chronic pouchitis since then. I am 60 now. What is your advice for treatment of the Pouchitis?
