I was diagnosed with Chronic Ulcerative Colitis when I was 4 years old. I lived with it until I was about 18 (if you want to call that living) and opted for an ileostomy. My only regret is that I didn't have the surgery sooner. I am now 82 and have had the ileostomy for 63 years.

I would be happy to talk to anyone about the surgery, recovery, life after an ostomy and ANY other topic.
