I am so confused becuase when you search K-pouch it says the kocks pouch or whatever also known as continent ileostomy. I found a girl who has one and her stoma is flush with her belly and has a valve made from her ileum. She wears a bandage over it.....small, you can hardly te.. She had rectal Cancer. She drains it with a cather 3-4 times da day and wears no appliance. She had this performed by Dr. Fazio @ Cleveland Clinic. I know the k-pouch, from research, has been around for a long time, but I know, again from researching, it has been modified. Also, whats the defference from BCIR.....I have found infor on this too.
