About Glen

Hi, I’m Glen and I have had a total proctocolectomy with ileostomy following a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis in 2001.

I live in County Durham, UK with my wife and son. I previously served in the Armed Forces as an intelligence operator.  I love travel and adventure and hiking mountains. I recently hiked Mount Kilimanjaro.

You can follow my adventures on Twitter @ileostomyontour and on Instagram ileostomy_on_tour
