I have the long peg tube type with a clamp and it works very well except the skin under where the tube goes in is always raw looking, it bleeds sometimes and hurts but there are no infections. I showed this to the GI doctor and he said it is normal, it just don’t seam right to me. Is it normal to have raw looking skin that don’t heal and bleeding? It is hell when we have to ask the doctors a question and all they can do is to look at you crossed eyed. I get more information from the Nurse then the doctor these days. I am not sure how long this will last this way but hope I can get the button type next time as I head better things about it.
