When you're cured and aren't sick anymore, life is great!!! I stepped in so much cr@p when I was sick, because I had no control of my bowels, and that wasn't funny at all. Basically, life sucked when I was sick. Now, it's funny if I get some poo on me when I'm changing my pouch, because I'm healthy and have my life back. It's all a matter of perspective. Welcome to our world.

58 year old Grandma in the Buckeye State.
UC DX 2006 in 2007 DX was changed to Crohn's Colitis.
June 2010 had 10 inches of my colon removed due to a stricture.
Refused Remicade and Humira and opted for what I was certain would be my end result.

Got my life back with no regrets. Life is GOOD !!!
