I had an ileostomy due to UC. In the winter of 2019 after several flareups I had an emergency operation and have no intention of going back for a reversal. I love my life and enjoy socializing and meeting people of all ages and backgrounds. There is no longer pain, I am learning to get used to my Babba (bag) nothing stops me from enjoying myself/life. I did not even know what a stoma was and I am learning every day the trials and tribulations, which I am sure you know what I am talking about, but Hey Ho!. Just to say so grateful for this site as it answers a lot of my questions and I have noticed I am not alone.
