Roller coasters!

I'm thinking of heading to Florida next year (so long as I get the all clear after my mop up chemo that is) and was just wondering whether I'd be able to ride the roller coasters after my lap anterior bowel resection last year?!!

Dear @stumpycurlz,

As it will be 2 years since your surgery I cannot seen any reason why you can't ride a rollercoaster on your holiday!

Kindest regards,


Yay!! Thanks Charlotte, thought I ought to check first! Don’t want to perform anything!🤪
