Michael Seres: Reporter's profile
I am 42yrs old, married with 3 kids. Diagnosed with Crohns Disease (an incurable inflammatory bowel disease) aged 12 and have had 22 operations and my intestine failed 2years ago. Last October I underwent a small bowel transplant in Oxford. I was the 11th person to go through this procedure. Recovery may take up to a year but I am determined to lead a full life and will never let my issues get in the way.
For my story please go to www.beingapatient.blogspot.com. In hospital my wife continued to blog about the transplant, all those details on www.the-transplant-wife.blogspot.com. Both blogs are linked.
I hope that my experience can help any family that maybe going through similar difficulties.
