I'm new to the site.
This Saturday I will be having a loop illestomy.
Rather anxious but stoma nurse was just out to mark my stomach and she is just so lovely.

I was due to be having it back in April in the ulster independent but obviously was put off.
It all seems very real now so yea pretty anxious but I did have a wee party on Saturday and had a poop cake lol
I love the cake! It is amazing.
Have a read through articles within our pre surgery journey - https://abiggerlife.com/its-a-start/ There is lots of really good tips and advice for preparing and the first few weeks after surgery.
Hi Gillian, just wondering if your operation went ahead and how you are doing?
