Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Hannah and at some point this year I will be having my large intestine removed and a stoma fitted!
To say this is a shock would be an understatement!
I have a rare condition, which is hereditary called FPA, HMPS, Gardeners syndrome (all of the above) I will go into more detail of what this is to hopefully raise awareness later.
My main aim is to show people that's it's ok, I stay upbeat by talking to people and not bottling up my feelings, after all I will need every bit of support I can get!
I will be blogging my journey from life before a stoma and life during and after surgery.
I have also named my stoma (cecil)
I will be having an iliostomy, I will also cover the difference between different positions and names for this too.
This is all still very new for me so please bear with me, I want to get all the facts correct before I post!
Let's do this together!
