Hi Fran and Bob
I wish I could answer your questions but seeing as your husband has had 4 ileostomys I dont really have any answers.
Could I ask why your husband has had 4 ileostomys, did they all go wrong somehow?
When you ask 'how was it done' do you mean the reversal operation?
I was told at the time of having my ileostomy I would be having the reversal soon after, I didnt even have to ask.
Maybe because your husband has been well for 20 years the doctors dont feel a reversal operation is needed?
I am more than happy to help you with any questions.
