Theo Siddall was given a colostomy bag within 24 hours of being born with the condition ano-rectal malformation and has had to use it since then.

However, surgeons successfully created an opening, changing his life.

His mother Sue said: ‘It was an amazing feeling knowing he was back together, and he appeared so happy and pleased with himself as if he knew how far he had come.’

‘Theo’s problem didn’t show up in scans when I was pregnant’, she added.

‘But within 24 hours of his birth, we noticed there was something wrong when he couldn’t go to the toilet.

‘He had the colostomy bag and four months later at Sheffield Children’s Hospital doctors created an opening in his bottom, followed by his third operation – a reversal of the colostomy – two months later.

She continued: ‘But while Theo was able to go to the toilet he had a very sore bottom.

‘This was really painful for Theo and it was awful as a parent to have to try and clean his bottom when he was crying in pain.

‘After more operations, the consultant told us we should consider giving Theo a colostomy again to relieve his pain.

‘As parents we were heartbroken to hear this given everything Theo had been through, and in some ways it felt like a backwards step. But because of the amount of pain he was in, we didn’t really have a choice.’

After undergoing a final procedure in December, Theo’s life was permanently changed for the better.

He continues to receive check-ups at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, but his mum admitted that there has ‘been no looking back’ after the operation.

She added: ‘He feels the benefit every day, and yes we have issues with the bags leaking from time to time, but it’s still better than his skin being so sore.

‘With his colostomy bag Theo is a very happy and fun-loving little boy and it certainly doesn’t hold him back from his rough and tumble play’.
