Trigirl - i think the difference is that an ileostomy is where they remove the whole colon and the stoma is made from the ileum, or from the ending of the small intestines, and a colostomy is where they don't remove the whole colon and the stoma is made from the colon. mmm... i hope i'm right though.. please correct me anybody if i'm wrong.
