A Gentleman always
I have a permanent ostomy as a result of UC and crohns.
The experience taught me that life is to be lived, and wisely, and earnestly in the present.
It's now 20 years since I had the surgery, that simply saved my life.
The ostomy has never held me back, either in my professional life or personal life.
In 20 years I have being trekking in the places I only imagined before I was ill. Have now flown close to 400,000 air miles, 13 times to south america (my fav being Chile and Patagonia) and in February and October 2018 to China.
The surgery and ostomy changed my life and in the most positive manner.

like minded people for friendship.
