I'm new to having a stoma, had surgery for colostomy in november 2019 due to neurogenic bowel. Any helpful info or tips would be much appreciated, it would be great to get to know people that also have an ostomy. It would be great to speak to or meet people around my age that have a stoma.

I work in a nursing home in Hertfordshire and specialise in end of life care and have won a herts care award for my work, I've been there for nearly 11 years.

I love rock music (both current and classic), animals- I love exotics used to keep snakes, lizards and arachnids. I have a dog and used to keep chickens.
I like tattoos and have not long had one done around my stoma (its better than just seeing a bag!).
I love driving, exploring new places.
Interested in history & family history, arts and crafts, reading, watching films.... the usual.

Not sure what else to say, if you want to chat, send me a message on Instagram: keri.jones.710
