I will be online for my husband as he does not use computers. He had an ileostomy done about 2 months ago. Since he had a stroke a few years ago and it affected his dominant side, I do his ostomy care. It helps that I'm a retired nurse. We had found the site researching about rectal drainage. I had forgotten this could occur and it did upset my husband. Surgeon assured him he wasn't concerned. We joined the site for support.
