Tube Feeding Tips: G-Tube Issues

G-Tube Splitting

I’d like to correspond with someone who’s experienced problems with his or her G-tube splitting and pulling away from the end where you hook up. It seems the covers are so delicate that they wear out quickly and that’s when the leaking occurs. I also have a problem with the hub near the skin. It’s breaking, and if it goes all the way, there is no way to adjust it to make it fit securely. It seems like there has to be a better system to reduce these problems. Please email me if you have experienced similar problems.
