Hi lee. Sorry I cannot provide any advice since I've only had my fundo for 2 years and have not had to have it repeated. I'd recommend doing some internet searches for repeat fundo information, and I'm sure someone here will also post their story to help you too.

Good luck and keep us posted,
Katie G
