Does anyone have both an Illiostomy and thyroid removed? I have had both many years ago but think there must be a relationship. I also would like to discuss.

I know someone with an ileo who recently had her thyroid removed due to cancer, but she doesn't post here. Her ileo wasn't due to UC though.

If you change your email addy in your profile to 'available' so I can see it, I'll get her to email you if you like (don't post it on the public board though cos it's easy for spammers to access it that way, they can't if it's just showing in your profile).
Ileostomy for 34 years due to UC. I had my surgery at 10 years of age.

To Woozie...I have a J-pouch--have had it since 1998. Last year was diagnosed with Thyroid was all successfully removed & I needed no further treatment, but I, too, am curious to know whether there is any connection with UC and thyroid cancer. Anyone else have both?
