Hi, I'll be getting my Peg removed in about three weeks and was wondering if anyone can tell me what to expect or what their own experience was. Is there any pain - are there stitches, etc. Thanks for your info. Have a great nite and hope to hear from you soon.

It came out a lot easier than it went in. My internist took it out during an office visit. He did have to twist and tug a little. He said that sometimes tissue sticks to it. The pulling was a little uncomfortable but not really painful. He put a pressure bandage on and told me to keep it on 24 hours and then put just a gauze bandage over it. The first day it drained a little but then it healed very quickly. Now there is just a small indentation were the tube went in. Congratulations on getting it out. I was so relieved to know that I didn't have to depend on it anymore.
