Thanks Angela, it was a bit of a shock I went in to have a colostomy and woke up to an ileo. Things worse than they thought. Just got to get on with it, funny thing is the first 3 weeks were a doddle, now have other stuff going wrong, keep thinking I will wake up and its all been a bad dream.
Had 15 years of agony and just want my life back, been so long since I have been able to join in with stuff.
Family, sisters although were sympathetic at times got quite abrasive after a few years, was told pull yourself together, take some more painkillers etc as I missed a few Xmas, birthday celebrations. They had no idea what it was like..I am determined to see this through and get back to normal, whatever normal is.
People in the same boat know, and it helps to know I am not on my own, it has felt like it some days.
Thank you again
