Writing my Stoma Story

So I’ve been thinking about my fundraising plan. Not that there was much a plan, I just decided to give it ago. And so far I have raised £40, so thank you to the people who have already donated. The surgeons haven’t even sliced me open yet!

Anyway, I have created a category for these fundraising blog posts – Stoma Story – so if that is what you are interested in, then click on that to find them. My other blog posts are quite interesting too though.

I’m planning to try and write as much background as I can before the surgery in January, baby permitting. I think I need a post about:

Symptoms & diagnosis

First surgery

Life with a stoma

Pouch surgery & complications

Pouch advancement

Drugs, drugs and more drugs

The beginning of the end

Abscesses & fistula

Life with a failing pouch


And I think then we’ll be good to go with the surgery in January, and you’ll be able to see how things have developed. I’m also going to do a post along the way about how the two charities I’m raising money for have helped me, and how if you are living with IBD in the UK, they could help you too.

Thanks for reading, and if you are able to donate, you can do so at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RichardHarris19
