Beyond Surgery
Surgery

Hi my name is Rita, on the outside I look like a normal middle aged mum and house wife. I go to work and smile all day, when I get home, I step through the door and I can be who I am.. I always trusted Surgeons would make give me the options that would impprive my life, but right now...I wish I could turn back the clock.

I was diagnosed at 29, it all came as a bit of a shock as like most people disgnosed, I had heard of the disease but didnt really know much about it. 3 months after diagnosis, I had a sub total colectomy & Ileostomy. Along my journey over the past 12 years I never knew things could ever be this bad. In 2005 I had a reversal, consqently after the death of my mother in 2007, my health began to plummet.  I was doing a Masters in Social Work at the time, I so wanted to get the end before being called for surgery, I made it with one day to spare. I opted to have a permanent ileostomy (which would be on the left side due to all the scars on the right). I also requested a proctectomy.

Lynelle's Story (Crohn's)
My Story

Lynelle discusses her Crohn's diagnosis, stoma operation and reversal. 

My Crohns symptoms commenced when I was 18 after eating a pizza my boyfriend at the time. I had a bout of food poisoning which he seemed to overcome and I didn't. Extreme stomach pains when trying to eat and suddenly coming on for what seemed no reason I decided a visit to the doctor was needed. All the normal tests were done for things like appendicitis etc and the doctors seemed to have no answers. This lasted for about two years with me continually going back to doctors to be told it was "stress".

Sore Skin Problems
Ileostomy & Colostomy

Sore skin can be a real problem when you have a stoma. Keeping your peristomal skin (skin around your stoma) healthy is a great step towards a comfortable and secure stoma experience. Here are my healthy skin tips.

Remember, if you have any persistant skin issues or questions about changing your appliance, consult your hospital's stoma nurse.

Travelling with a stoma
Ileostomy & Colostomy

The following is based on my experiences travelling with an ileostomy. I've had a bag since 2002 and have travelled within Europe, the Caribbean and have had an extended stay in France with it.

Two questions I've been asked about the stoma are Can you fly on an aeroplane with it, and can you go swimming with it? The answer is yes on both counts!
