In September 2009 I became very sick with UC. Had my colon removed and left with an end ileostomy. In June of this year I had a j-pouch created and August 30 I have the takedown. Pretty nervous and excited.

The ileostomy isn't the end of the world but I had to try as my doctors considered me a great candidate.

I like to think I have a good personality and especially a good sense of humor. I would rather laugh about it than cry most of the time. Just looking for people I can relate and share stories with. We have a unique set of issues we deal with on a regular basis.

Will try to get a pic or two up before too long.
