Reply to "Would you go back to the ileostomy?"

I am now considering going back to an ileostomy.  I have to make this decision which has been recommended by  two different colon and rectal surgeons.  I now have a j-pouch which is causing me much pain and my quality of life has been affected.  I have had this j-pouch for 32 years.  

I can't help remembering all the problems I had with my ileostomy.  I'm wondering if they are better now.   My questions to persons who have gone to an ileostomy from a j-pouch, do they leave the j-pouch and put the ileo directly to the stomach?  I'm told this is a much easier surgery and removing the j-pouch can cause many complications and possibly infections.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
