Hello fellow Ostamates and Friends ,
My Name is Bob im a 73 year old who lives in Lancaster . I would like to tell my story about living with a Stoma. I suffered from Ulcerative Colitis for over twenty years ,lots of time off work , severe depression , etc etc. Then on 28th sept 2004 after asking for a illeostomy several times, I was told i could have one , and I did! And guess what i have never looked back. My life is just perfect- like everyone else I have had a few ups and downs. I can go on holidays with my wife Hazel , and dont worry about things. My hobbies are walking and photography. I walk in all sorts of weather and all sorts of terrain.
The main reason im telling this is that there is life after a A Stoma. TRY AND ENJOY IT! Please don't keep everything to yourself , don't be embarrased about asking for help. I'm sending a couple of photos.
If i can do it , i'm sure you can.
Enjoy life Bob
Thanks for sharing Bob, I love the pictures. Great to hear you are active and enjoy getting out and about to travel and explore new places.
