Experiences knowledge comunity I asked my journey began when I was 16 and diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. I live with that disease until I was about 26 at which time I found information about a Coke pouch and internal pouch that required no external appliances. I had that surgery, it never worked correctly had several revisions Requiring surgeries has still never worked so I lived with a colostomy pouch for over a decade. I later found an improved surgery on the coat pouch called BC I are performed in very few places in the country I had my first surgery done about 15 years ago and it’s Seem to work OK then several problems irrupt it I had several revisions three my last one being about eight years ago. Since then everything has worked perfectly no appliance needed and I merely intubate my stoma three times a day. I haven’t been through all these surgeries it kind of changes your psyche about things. Recently lost my wife November 2018 and now I’m trying to MoveOn. Looking to meet someone to hang out with dinner travel that sort of thing. Looking to meet someone who maybe has been through similar circumstance that would like to have some fun with someone who can relate to their situation.
