peg tube removal
After having the doctor remove my husbands peg tube,it seems to be an extreme amount of liquid draining from the small hole. Is this normal, and for how long will this continue to leak at the rate it is going now?

Hello Ruscar,

Please forgive my tardy response. I hope that you have had your concern answered by now.

A PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) tube may drain, even moderate or large amounts of fluid for several days following removal. This is fairly normal in most instances. However your physician should always be contacted with these concerns.

Please let us know how your husband is doing. He is so fortunate to have your love and concern.

Peace,
~Tuck
