Reply to "Friend went from BCIR to Kpouch"

So why would they 180 her pouch and go through all of the risk of rebuilding a valve if she didn't need one? I have had peristomal hernias, abdominal necrosis behind the pouch and stoma prolapses that compromised my stoma opening and they just moved my stoma (unhooked the valve and moved it either up or down and then rehooked me) but they only rebuilt my valve when it was either slipped or torn or irreperable. They have repaired my valve numerous times but only changed it completely once...makes no sense unless it was irreperable.
