Hi everyone, Sorry i haven't replied to many posts for a few weeks i have been reading them just not had time to reply been a bit manic!!!! Have been doing good although had a bit of a blip a few weeks ago ended up in hossy for a few days due to having chest pains and dehydration the pains were were a reaction to the anxiety tabs (seretline) so have had to go back on citalopram. still on no maintainance drugs at the mo Asacol was giving me sickness and really bad headaches am going to ring Gi nurse today to get her to speak to the docs to give me something as my appointment isn't till the end of sept. on a lighter note i am going camping on fri for a week it will the 1st time i have been away with this stoma so this will be a challenge!!!!! but im really looking forward to it  when i get back im seeing surgeon on the 10th hoping for a date for reversal yet again  other than that im doing ok  and slowly gaining weight (at last) hope you are all well as can be expected take care Bev x

Glad to hear you are doing somewhat better. Have fun on your camping trip and just try to relax and enjoy yourself.
