Also, I was treated with Prednisone when I had UC and as a result have had both my hips and knees replaced and a number of other surgeries. I am happy to report that this hasn't slowed me down and would be open to talking with other about Avascular Necrosis which caused my bone degeneration.

I have had an ileostomy since 1991 due to Ulcerative Colitus and I want people to know that you can do anything you want to do! I regularly swim, scuba dive, surf, snowboard, play ice hockey, roller blade, cycle and list goes on! Don't let your disease run your life and once you've had the surgery get out there and go for it!

I'd be happy to chat with any one regarding UC or the surgery/recovery.
