Hi I had 14inches of my small intestine removed in Feb. I have been in remission starting in June. I just started working out again, first ab stuff in over a year. I'm worried about this causeing things to go out of wack. Does anyone work out regularly and have any advice?

Definitely talk to your doctor about it. You're possibly still going through the healing process. I've had a J Pouch for over 20 years and am not worried about what working out does to what's left of my intestine. Since working out hasn't caused any problems for me, I wouldn't be too worried if I was you. Everybody is different though. Take it slow at the beginning and watch for any problems. I've injured myself numerous times exercising, but none of my injuries have been J Pouch related. Although I am worried about dehydration while doing aerobics, since I know that's more likely to happen, when you have a pouch. My doctor believes my use of Immodium is what flicked the switch this year
