Hi Folks, I have been watching a programme with the above title. It’s basically all about healthy and not so healthy gut problems. It’s amazing what percentage of the population suffers from problems. In fact it said 1 in 350 people have a stoma half of those temporary but that’s still incredible to believe. Now that’s in the UK but am certain its similar all over. Also it had a Young girl featured who was living with crohns. The future with a bag terrified her (understandably) she was introduced to another girl her age. Both are 23 and the it was a real relief for the girl facing surgery to see and ask the questions she had. Shows how support and example can be so important. It’s a channel 4 program here in the UK. Definitely worth the watch if you can get it ?

John... that sounds intresting! I know myself I felt very alone until I found this community of Osto-buddies here! Thank you Eric..and everyone. !!! 

If anyone in Canada (esp. B.C.) can find this program, PLEASE note what station & channel here, I'd be interested in watching this also.  My eyes are just not great at all so I'm not good at finding much on screens. 

Thank you!

Thanks for sharing, @john68!

I was able to watch it using a paid VPN set to London, UK and using a dummy account to log in. ? 

I love these types of programs.

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.
