Today was the start of a new feed. After a good couple of hours things reverted to type. It isn't easy being a Bowel Transplant patient.

Enteral feeding is causing me real problems and at the same time what do you wear when you have a stoma?

After 22 operations for crohns disease I had to have a bowel transplant. This is my journey through the transplant and I hope that it will help others who suffer with IBD to know they are not alone.
