I'm now going to be just about a month and a half post ileostomy surgery and barring the horrible adhesion-blockage situation I had, I am LOVING life right now. I'm finding the right appliance, learning my body all over again and most of all EATING! Gosh I still walk into a place and scope out the closest bathroom ... just out of habit!! Our UC and JPouch days have etched that into our routines I guess. Then I quickly realize that ..... hmmm if I need to go ... I just go and everything will be ok :)

Life is good!

Congrats! I am 3 months post total proctocolectomy surgery with ileostomy and feel excellent too. I eat and eat and eat and eat with no issues. My only problem now is weight gain and I don't care. I think my body was dying for calories anyway. lol
Diagnosed in 2004 with Crohn's disease. Resection in 2009. Have tried almost every medication and nothing has worked. Total proctocolectomy June 16, 2010
