Gtube leakage

Aubin - posted on 02/27/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




My son is 3 years and 7 months. He's had. Gtube since 3 months. He has a lot of leakage causing a lot of granulation tissue. He leaks so much he soaks at night. I was using stoma hessive powder until I was told they stopped making it. Then they switched us to Karaya powder. Now they've supposedly stopped making that. I need something similar I can use on my son. I can't use Stomahesive paste because it burns him. I'm also looking for a way to decrease his granulation tissue. I also need a good way to keep his gtube from pulling and falling out at night while on his continuos feed. I normally prop the extension up with a sock just enough so it's not pulling the tube. Then wrap him with an ace bandage. Wondering if anyone has a better way.
