Dan Flood

Beyond The Stoma  

Dan Flood, 32, is an operations manager from Poole who was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in September 2012. He tried to manage the condition with pharmaceuticals and diet but as it progressed it took its toll on his mental health and he was diagnosed with anxiety and depression in 2016. Then in 2017 he ended up needing emergency ileostomy (small intestine) bowel surgery in 2017.


After the surgery, he suffered a mental breakdown and in 2018 he made his recovery both physically and mentally his priority and hasn’t looked back. He is now a fitness model and a big advocate of strength training.
