I hope everyone is keeping well!?.. I haven't been on here for quite a while, things are quiet in work so I though id drop an update.
This time last year I was struggling, reading almost every post on here day and night..
The docs were not sure if I had crohns or Collitis.. I was sick for +10Years!
I tried EVERY medicine there was on the market.. Had my fill with the dreadful pred and meds in general...
Well surgery was done in July 2013 and confirmed (6months later) that all the years I was sick it was in fact UC. Now I can have the next two surgeries which for me is great news! - My love hate relationship with the stoma/bag is due to come to an end within the next 6 months!!.. :)
Surgery wasn't as bad as i thought, and i can honestly say im getting back to better health than what i was before the surgery.. almost all my strength back - But Ive got to go very soon for step 2 fo 3 surgeries.. :( - looks like its right back to square one soon!
I love the freedom of the bag, but obviously HATE having it.. learned to live with it for now though..
If anyone has any questions feel free to email me.
Chasing full health.. may take some time to get there but I think i can smell it lol
Keep trying people!
