I am a hard worker single man that has lived with Ulcerative Colitis since I turned 21. I have tried to live life no matter how bad things have been with the condition. Now that I am 40 my colon is giving up the ghost and according to my doctor it needs to go. I like to meet, share and learn from people that have traveled a similar road.. Had my surgery on 9-10-18 (Update: healing good, still experimenting with foods I can eat and learning the up s and downs of having a ileostomy pouch, I work outdoors and found I have to hold back what I do, still testing the waters on what my new body will allow me to do)
