Hello. My name is Lucy. I was diagnosed with the inflammatory bowel disease [IBD] Ulcerative Colitis in 2001.

In 2009, I had an emergency total colectomy (surgery to remove my colon) and a stoma. I had further surgery to form an internal j-pouch in 2010.

This blog is an account of the realities of life with chronic illness – my experiences, discoveries and the inevitable lifestyle changes I’ve had to make.

  1. Hi Lucy,
    I admire your courage and strength despite what you’ve gone through and the fact that you are still smiling in this photo. That’s so encouraging. I wish you all the best in everything you do. Have a pleasant day and a wonderful week!!!
