I had a feeding tube because I was in a coma for several months. From bone cancer. I was wonder is there any kind of problems associated with feeding tubes after they were removed. I have scare were it was. Anything I should keep a look out for? Like in the stomach or any were else.

You may want to ask someone on the Head and Neck cancer site. A lot of those cancer patients have feeding tubes and will be glad to answer your question. Hope this helps you.
