I am awaiting the second (and final) part of my surgery to reverse my ileostomy. I was diagnosed at 17 with ulcerative colitis and within 2 weeks I was given emergency surgery to remove the large bowel and create a stoma.
I am looking to speak to people around a similar age group to me (18-25) who have similar experiences, to speak to, share advice and stories. I would particularly like to hear about
things I can do to prepare for my surgery, and recovey.
