Hi All in forum thinking about or facing possible surgery, Just wanted to let you know that I'm having surgery on 7th February 2017 to remove my bowel apart from 20cm (rectum & anus) & have a stoma bag. 'Stanley' the stoma will be the start of my recovery after over three & half years of ulcerative colitis, hospital admissions & sadly no drugs found to control it. Been on steroids for most of that time & still on them now.
This is Not a decision taken lightly, discussions about surgery started 18 months ago! This is part of process to get my life back & get well.
Anyone also facing this I'm happy to answer, if able, any sensible positive questions.
Bearing in mind Everyone is different so always make your Own decision.
