Button PEG flaw… February 22, 2010

Posted by loz121 in Uncategorized.
I have found a flaw in the button PEG which I got back in November. Apart from that tiny flaw, the button PEG is brilliant!

I find that the extension tube that clicks into my PEG, when you turn it all the way round clockwise, there’s nothing to stop it from going back anti-clockwise so if you are fiddling in bed, it finds its way back anti- clockwise and can come out. It would help if there was a stopper to keep it there while you sleep! It has come out once or twice and I’ve woke up in a pool of stinky, sticky feed liquid in my bed. Some nights, I can be fiddling with the PEG tube to make sure it’s still in and it’s still all the way round clockwise! I’m having a few sleepless nights when I’m on the feeds because of that. BUT apart from that the PEG is all great and I haven’t had an infection so far!
Plus it’s a little dinky think on my tummy and I forget i’ve got it sometimes! hehe
