Question: I have chronic pouchitis and have had two bowel obstructions. As a result, I get regular flex sigs done with balloon dilatation every 3-6 month. Is it safe to have that done so often?

The bowel obstructions required 5 day hospitalizations each time, but resolved with bowel rest and IV antibiotics. That's why I get regular flex sig and balloon dilatations done.
