My name is Rob Smith
I arrived in this world, 14th June 1966, a home birth, soon rushed to Sheffield children’s hospital, as I had no bum hole!. Surgery aged 2 days, found I had a high case of rectal atresia, other bowel problems, and a stoma bag fitted at 2 days old. Many other operations followed as I grew, bag removed aged 4 and connected up down below to poop from new bum.
School years were a nightmare of incontinence and accidents, mixed with constipation and agony. Things got better between 15 and 29, got married had a gorgeous little girl, running own farming business, life was good.
