I had U/C for 10 years or so without any real issues then it just went crazy. I've had 6 ops from xmas 2016 to november 2019. Tried the J pouch for almost 12 months and for me was almost as bad as U/C so back to the ileostomy I go. I have many interests, a good job, a loving family and consider myself very fortunate for what I have after all this, and dont forget just like many others we are all very special people.
So if I "like" a pic or a post, just means I hear you and I'm thinking of you.
