Diagnosed with crohns aged 3. Went into remission at 8 until around 19 years old. Spend the next 9 years living with this horrible disease until I had my large bowel removed in 2008 as the crohns had ravaged the last foot of my bowel. Wish they had done it earlier and I hadn’t lost so many years to poor health. Had a parastomal hernia repair in October 2018 which hasn't been the best as they shortened my stoma which has led to many more leaks.

All in all though living with a bag in 100 times better than living with crohns.

Would like to hear and talk to others about there experiences, particularly those who are trying the whole dating scene with a bag.
