I'm quite shy but very friendly.Seperated from wife March 2011 amicably after 14 years married.Took ill in 2005 and was diagnosed with crohn's disease,after all usual meds failed got permanent colostomy with rear end removed in may 2006,Two parastomal hernia operations had to be done but Crohn's was in remission until december 2010.Prednisalone and Azathioprin tabs taken,but was doubled over in pain and was rushed to hospital in 2nd july where a emergency op was performed as a massive abscess had formed behind my colostomy and previous mesh repair with wound drain left in situe.Very mucky output in drain led to further ct scan which revealed a communicating fistula from colon into wound drain area so after various IV antibiotics and no improvement further surgery to remove colon was performed on 5th August 2011total colectomy and ileostomy formed with old colostomy site being left open to heal with dressings etc to prevent further build up/infection in that area.So at the moment district nurses are dressing this wound daily,I reckon it will take about 5-6 months before it heals,Just my new ileostomy to get used to now.Off my work for 13 weeks now and have been given a line for another month so just gonna chill out as best as i can and hopefully get back to work and get a life again,Thanks for reading this.

I would like to meet friends and maybe to have a relationship,I like computers,music and watching dvd's.Like food.
