hi, im new here and was hoping to get some info on what a slipped valve of a k pouch op entails, I got my k pouch about 8 months ago, had a lot of complications, which was more to do with adhesions etc..... (having had several surgeries), i was able to intubate fine for about 4 months then it became increasingly difficult, ended up being hospitalised many times. At the moment i have my tube taped in every night and some days, the longer i leave the tube out the harder it is to intubate. My surgeon says i will probably need surgery but i have other health issues and dont feel i could cope with another surgery so soon, iv been unlucky and caught a virus while trying to recouperate from the surgery and have caught every bug, flu anything thats going and feel extremely weak at the moment. Iv been told it is a big surgery but my dr did not go into much detail. I cant go on like this indefinately but the thought of another surgery while im feeling so exhausted i cant even contemplate. I usually always see the positive in situations, 2010 was a tough year, so things can only get better. Anybody with any info on this procedure or just advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
