What a refreshing and uplifting post, UCwhat?
Congratulations on your 1st anniversary and with reclaiming your life.
My 3rd anniversary for the same surgery is coming up in July and I plan on celebrating.
I won't hijack your thread, but I pretty much could have written your post with the exception that I have Crohn's Colitis and my hubby took care of me.
Here's to your continued good health.
59 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.
July 2011 had a proctocolectomy with permanent end ileostomy.
Got my life back with no regrets. Life is GOOD !!!
