Hi there again folks. It’s been a while since I was last here and time for an update. Had a reversal for a colostomy about 5 years ago. Met one amazing lady here. Moved to Edinburgh late last year and settled down again to one of most favourite cities. Have recently been advised by my new gastroenterologist to prepare for a new stoma as colon is deteriorating due to UC. So, I’ll soon be back as a ‘man with a bag’ all over again. I don’t look at it negatively at all and will be happier not having all the meds to take.

Thanks to this wonderful site I am where I am today! ;-) I promise to stay more in touch and for anyone here with any questions, please don't be afraid to ask me anything! God bless you all! ;-)
