I shall proceed and alter the information here as I go along!
I am a bubbly average guy that has a good sense of humour.
Having a whole new experience with recent operations, and with these processes I now have an Ostomy degree, as well as a designer accessory to go with it! Deep joy! :o)

I have had in ileostomy since mid September 2010, initially had some minor problems, but that was to be expected.

I have just had another Operation (June 2011) for a hernia around the stoma frustratingly, slowly recovering.

Ahh well back to the drawing board October 2011 the dreaded hernia has returned, I therefore have to have yet another operation to get that rectified again, so very annoying :o(

Wonder what is next around the corner?

I have turned the corner only to come across yet another one :o(
The hernia was repaired in February 2012 to no avail, I spent 12 hours in surgery as apparently it was quite challenging.

September 2012 the hernia has returned yet again, bigger and better than the last one :o(

Now back onto the conveyor belt and wait for the next process, this is a long and windy road!

July 2013 still waiting for further surgery, apparently I am top of the list. (whatever that means)
