I am 18 months post ileostomy after dealing with UC for too many years. I returned to work and golf two months after surgery. I am eating foods I haven't had for years, Jambalaya, Chili etc. I enjoy the occasional adult beverage. I am thankful for the second chance at a full life. This site has helped me tremendously with advice and suggestions. We learn so much by experiencing new challenges. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or just need to vent. We have so much to learn from each other.
