Crohns survivor-Permanent Ileostomy
Diagnosed with Crohn's in my late 20's-spent a month in hospital doctors had no idea what was wrong and I nearly succumbed to my illness-managed for number of years with tons of medications,when they stopped working tried Remicade but after 4th infusion went into cardiac arrest! The inevitable next step was surgery:
2010-first surgery resulting in colostomy-major complications as my left kidney started to fail
2011-second surgery resulting in my now permanent ileostomy and stoma was re sighted from left to now right side
2014-large mass found resulting in total hysterectomy(benign thankfully!)

I keep active(used to be a professional horse trainer/athlete but had to sell my horse farm and close that chapter)-I now own my own dog walking/pet sitting business.
