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
