Hi to all,
I am just wondering if anyone who had the peg tube removed experienced pain at the site after eating.
My dad had his Mickey button removed on Tuesday (hooray) but after he eats he has pain where the
Hole was for about an hour. Is this normal?
By the way, to celebrate the removal of his button (as we called it), my two brothers and my sister suprised
My parents with a mini dauschand (ten weeks old) and guess what they named him......BUTTONS!!!!!!!!! Lol
Hope alls well.
Thanks
Michelle

Michelle,

No pain at my “button” after I popped my PEG. I assume it is normal healing pain after all there was a hole in your stomach. If it is not better soon you know who to call, otherwise take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning. Now where do I get my puppy (surprise).

Best,

Matt

It ached all the time, but when I ate...it ached worse. I thought it was just because my stomach was stretching. It only lasted a few days. Your dad is not alone on this one!! :)

Congrats on the new pup...puppies are great motivation to get well...you are forced to get up and get puppy out the door.

I had some pain after removal which lasted for a few days, much like the pain I had when it was placed. I also had pain while eating. Not with every meal but most, right in that spot. It mostly went away a few weeks after but even now 4 months later I still get a zap or twinge in that spot when I eat every once in a while. But it is very easy to deal with compared to some of the stuff we've been thru.
Enjoy your puppy, I'm jealous

Michelle,

Yes a firm tug then a “pop” sound followed by a whoosh of belly juice and it was done.

Thanks except me? I said it is probably normal healing pain and to call someone if it continued. Does this mean I don’t get a puppy?

Heart broken in Oregon,

Matt

Would make me a happy camper to get this thing out. Oh well someone has to keep the blender business alive.
