“My name is Philipp Stehler, I am 33 years old and almost died of the consequences of a chronic inflammatory bowel disease” – with this statement one of the most moving Instagram postings begins for a long time.

Philipp Stehler knows fans of the German “Bachelor” universe from the formats “Die Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise”. In the Sat.1 series “K11 – The New Cases”, the new edition of the cult format “K11 – Commissioners in action”, the former police officer strengthened the team. In the social media, he showed himself to be a well-trained sun boy and caused a sensation with hot body pics.

Ex-Bachelorette star Philipp Stehler shows himself with a “bag” on the stomach

Now he has posted a completely different picture on Instagram, with two versions of himself: Philipp on the left, as you know him from TV. Next to it a changed man, with less body mass and less muscles. And with a “bag” on the stomach – an artificial anus. Presenting himself so ruthlessly honestly was not easy for him, as he writes: “It took me some time to post this picture. Almost exactly a year and two weeks. Because on 09/22/2020 I was able to mine artificial anus can be removed again. “

“The artificial anus saved my life”

Since then, says Philipp, he has worked up everything “every day”, from the first symptoms in 2010 to the “fourth and last operation, where the ‘bag’ could be removed from me”. The artificial anus saved his life.

Relentlessly honest, he shares his health problem with his followers. “I suffered from ulcerative colitis for many years …. Don’t be offended if I don’t hide anything until today. An artificial anus was new, unknown, psychologically and physically a burden for me, but above all it saved me my life! “

Fans are touched: “I got goose bumps while reading”

With his posting he also wants to draw attention to the taboo topic. “100,000 people in Germany suffer from chronic intestinal diseases.” He has therefore decided to write a “100% transparent book” with the title “My gut is not an ass” because “most will never talk about it because digestive problems are still very much taboo.”

His fans are deeply touched: “It’s so strong of you Philipp!” Writes one. Another commented: “I got goose bumps while reading”.
