Re: Farewell Norman....

Hi, do you think that it might have been different if they had used the pigs collagen mesh as they did with me, I know it's expensive, I was told mine cost £8,000, but I am worth it, or at least the last figure!

Re: Frequent blockages post total colectomy help!

(2 pieces of plain white bread and 2 servings of homemade mash, not in the same meal ). Hi clarabella, that is a shame, I had this vision of a sandwich with an inch thick filling of mashed potato! I have been very fortunate with blockages, I think I only had one but that was enough. I had the same ...
