View Full Version : My G-tube

24th October 2004, 01:44 AM
I was in school well after school at the volleyball game and I was buying nachos and there is a counter there and i went up like popped up and the counter hit my G-tube i didnt notice anything at first but then i noticed that it was sticking out a little bit so i went discretly and saw that yup it was sticking out so I called my mom right away and i thought maybe the balloon had ran out of water so i tried filling it up and nothing happened so we went to the doctor and she pulled it out and the balloon had popped so i now have a new G-tube but in a month I am getting another new one for a different size ahhhhh this probably sounds confusing sorry

Oh no - that must be really irritating if nothing else. Hope it all goes well! I'm really sorry you've now got this as well :hug: Is replacing it difficult?

I hope it doesn't hurt to change! That sounds freaky... I know I'd be freaked out if that happened!

I'm glad that it won't hurt to change it Kayla, we don't want you having more pain.

It's great if it doesn't hurt! Phew :D I would freak out too if it happened, you're brave :P

Is it working well for you Kayla? I guess that's the main thing and with any luck your next one will be the last.

Sorry to hear that happened Kayla. It does sound a bit painful, so I'm glad you say it's easy to change and therefore I assume doesn't hurt. Let's hope it won't be in for too much longer.

Its doesnt hurt at all it is serioulsy like changing an earring! Does that hurt? noo I hope not atleast anyways I was freaked out at first because I wanted to hurry up and get a new one because it would be hard to keep it in during my sleep and if it came out the hole could close up
