I am a 62 (2010) year old male enjoying retirement, I have had a Colostomy since 2006 following two emergency operations for a perforated bowel and following the second operation spent 9 days in Intensive care with septicaemia. I was able to take early retirement at the age of 60. I worked for GKN Aerospace Services for 30 years and was progressed to Chief Systems Engineer and Head of Airworthiness. My work involved some traveling which took me to the US, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Cyprus, Italy, Sweden, France...

I have a BSc degree in Digital and Analogue Electronics, Intrumentation and Physical Science for Technology.

My hobbies include Amateur Radio (Full Lincensee) and Astronomy.

We have a motorhome (RV) and holiday in the UK.

I was born and grew up on the Isle of Wight and apart from and spell of 10 years in the Royal Navy mostly on Nuclear Submarines and living in Edinburgh [Scotalnd[ for 3 years I have lived and work on the Island.

Not really looking for a friendship as such but had to put something in my profile box. Just interested in other peoples experiences living with an ostomy. Would be happy to pass on my experiences to others.
