I had my ileostomy created after 21 years of a poorly functioning j-pouch (created thanks to UC).

Please excuse the vain Instagram-wannabe topless selfie - I decided to hit the gym big time once I was out of the "no heavy lifting" phase as a way of helping me deal with my poor body image with the bag. I feel more at peace with my body image as a result.

I am a father of 2 boys, a lawyer and a biker (of 13 years - it's not a midlife crisis😏). And I like music you'll probably hate 😀.
