Koch Pouch Issues

Posted by Jilly Bean, on Fri Jun 07, 2019 1:18 pm

Hello! I have a Koch Pouch illeostomy since 1983.  I had a CAT Scan done this week and just found out today that inside my pouch there are 3 large stones. One is 3 cm and the other two are each 1 cm.  Has this happened to anyone else and if so what will need to be done? My Dr wants me to speak to a General Surgeon. Thanks in advance. Jill

I think I might want to consult the surgeon that put the pouch in. Not sure I would want a general surgeon that may not be a versed in your needs as your specialty surgeon.  Just a thought!

Jilly Bean,   I agree with puppluv56.  When it comes to any surgery, I want someone who specializes in that field.  They are more likely to be more up to the minute with procedures and possiblities, as well as causes and reactions.  Good Luck
