  1. So proud of you and thank you for sharing you are a beautiful girl. You are amazing and you are making people aware that life is not straight forward for everyone.

  2. I have had a permanent ileostomy for 32 years. It gave me my life back and I feel blessed to be alive. I have a wonderful wife and amazing 17 year old daughter. My stoma has never stopped me doing anything and I am grateful to all the NHS staff who helped me.

  3. I have had my stoma since 1977 at the age of 31 years. I have had a full and happy life raising my family, working full time and travelling. Great support from our amazing NHS and their surgeons, Drs and nurses. My advice would be – take time to recover and adjust and find an appliance that works for you. Well done Amber. Thank you for sharing. Xx

  4. What an amazing young lady you are. Thank you for sharing this. It is so good to see the way you have dealt with your surgery. Many people are very frightened at the thought of having this sort of procedure and how it will affect their future life. Putting it out there on social media will I am sure reassure others. x
