Hi everyone,

Hi everyone,

Eight months have past rather quickly since the day of my life-saving operation to remove my diseased intestine. I couldn't be better! I've had my ups and my downs which could be expected but I'm now living life to the full. Previously I suffered from Crohn's disease but now the 'suffering' part has vanished. I'm perfectly normal, aside my ileostomy pouch.

I'm currently on placement with a large company that manages the trunk roads in Scotland, Bear Scotland. I'm doing Administration and I'm very happy there. They have been kind enough to facilitate my needs and place me on a training course (SVQ Administration) which will boost my C.V to a great extent. It's only a couple of months until I start temporary-employment, messy weekends expected!

Great picture Joseph and wonderful story. Nice to hear people on here with success stories. Good luck and good health to you in the new employment. [i guess there has to be at least one sensible person working for Bear Scotland so why shouldn't it be you!] :)

I had my Ilestomy surgery in Aug.2012 and was doing fairly well when all of a sudden I hit rock bottom. Because of my surgery my body is know longer absorbing nutrition or my medications.They have some of these meds by shot or patches but others just aren't working.I am now on Ensure and it is putting lots of weight on me. I am still trying to find an appliance to prevent pancaking.Thanks for listening to me complain but has anyone else had this problem?

Hi ya, congrats on feeling so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im 30 and have just got my stoma bag (4 weeks ag) and its for life so its wonderful to hear that you are doing well as it makes me feel positive.

Its s easy to write when things are going wrong, but I think more people like you should talk of how positive stomas can be.

Hope you have a fab week and wonderful pain free life xxxxxx
