Saving Me From Ulcerative Colitis

Eight years ago Gut Gizmo saved my life, after I lost control of my Ulcerative Colitis. At the time I was a new mum and had a career, but I became too poorly to do either jobs.

Gut Gizmo swooped in to permanently save the day by using his regeneration superpower, which took effect pretty much instantly.  I genuinely felt an improvement inside my body before I’d even recovered from the operation.

Giving Me My Old Life Back

Gut Gizmo’s work became even more apparent once I’d recovered fully from the operation and started to realise I had my ‘old’ life back. I was able to look after my baby boy, including having cuddles, which I had missed the most. I can still lay on the floor with him to play and my stoma doesn’t impede me.

I was even able to go back and do my very physical job as a Prison Officer.

The Power Of Adventure

can now go out anywhere because I no longer have to worry about where the nearest loo is. I can swim, go hiking and sunbathe. I can ride really fast rollercoasters with harnesses and bars across my abdomen without having to worry.

I no longer have to cancel plans with friends at the last minute due to Ulcerative Colitis and feeling unwell. I can now even go to music festivals.

The Power To Eat Anything

Gut Gizmo has given me the power to be able to eat anything I like without pain. Some things like fruit skins and nuts can give me extra-trapped wind, but that is nothing compared to an Ulcerative Colitis flare.

The Power Of Invisibility

Gut Gizmo wears a superhero suit (ileostomy bag) which is comfortable, discreet and waterproof.  This suit gives him the power of invisibility so that, unless I tell people, no one knows I poo into a bag attached to my tummy.

His super suit means that I don’t have to worry about what I am wearing, because he is always invisible. Tight or loose, long or short, Gut Gizmo has given me the body confidence to wear anything.
