My son is 9 months old and on Peritoneal Dialysis. We meet with a surgeon on Monday to discuss having surgery for a G-tube and fundo. We were pretty hesitant at first but are leaning more towards g-tube. My son now has a nj tube and he has pulled it out twice. He also has reflux and is always spitting up stomach acid. I'm hoping the g-tube will relieve him of some of the discomfort. My main worry of the g-tube is infections and it potentially affecting his dialysis. How long is the recovery for g-tube placement? Are they easy to care for? Has anyone children been on dialysis when they had g-tube placement?
