My son of 20 months had the PEG/G-tube surgery last Friday. He seemed to be doing fine but then he developed a fever and the wound got infected. Probably because of the infection the opening is now too big and leaking large amounts of food which doesn't help the infection to heal.
He now has a duodenum tube since tuesday to keep his stomach as empty as possible to give the wound a chance to heal and hopefully become narrower.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of complication? We are still not confident this is going to resolve by itselve and we're afraid we put him through all of this for nothing.
Thank you so much!
