Great White North

I had emergency ileostomy surgery February 2015 due to Ulcerative Colitis getting out of control. I also had a second surgery November 2015 to remove my rectum, as the Ulcerative Colitis showed up again in the “tail pipe”. Since then, trying to build myself back up both physically and mentally. I find it’s a long process, but am happy not to be in pain from the colitis any longer. People on this site are great....made me realize you’re not alone.
