Join the Largest Ostomy Community


Had an emergency stoma in November following completely unexpected rupture of my bowel which resulted in sepsis and sigmoid part of my colon removed due to cancerous tumour. Despite major surgery was back in the gym within 4-weeks. Currently on chemo but still managing 3/4 CrossFit sessions a week. Family, friends, Crossfit, rowing and my dog are my passions. Hoping to get support, hints, tips etc and pass on the same to others especially about the ability still to exercise.
