Hi!! wow, we both had Dr Gerber in 1980! I had no idea or have met anyone else! His assoc's took over and they did my valve revisions but they are retired. I need to check out their offices to see if anyone is doing them.
In the meantime, we found Dr Launer out of Scripps in La Jolla who trained with Dr Kock and Dr Gerber. He unfortunately passed away last year. But, his assoc Dr Worsey is very capable and worked hand in hand with Dr Launer and independently doing KPs.
I haven't heard of stones - I know you can have very old undissolved medication that looks like stones. Did they send them to the lab? if, so what type of stones were they? Also, you may want to start a new discussion with the headline "pouch stones" to see if any members respond....
I'd set up a consult with Dr Worsey. He can also do a scope right there and then in his office. Yes, no sedation..hurts like hell for a few minutes but no biggie as you well know.
How wonderful you found us. I also had no idea until I found this wonderful forum in 2008! I'm PM you...let's get together! We have a small group of KPers that try to meet for lunch annually!
