One of my patients.........

…is touring through Norway on his bike for 4 weeks. While it may sound like a jolly jaunt, this man has had most of his bowel removed and was pretty debilitated for quite some time. As a result he has to get all his nutrition intra-venously via a catheter that goes straight into his heart. This intravenous nutrition has to be set up every day completely aseptically, this is a challenge to do in hospital and at home never mind in a tent!!

He is doing this trip to raise money for research and education into Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Intestinal Failure at my hospital.

Please take a look at this and support him if you like.
