From what I've seen on the internet, some continent ostomy stomas look like flatter versions of a typical ileostomy stoma and some look more like a slit in the skin. Is this one of the differences between the Kock pouch and the BCIR? Or is it just a difference in the surgeon's technique? The surgeon I met with told me there wasn't much of a difference between the pouches, just that the valves were slightly different but they worked the same. I'm curious to hear what people who actually live with a pouch think though.
