So my fiance has been using a peg tube for three months and we discovered a leak today (not from the peg tube site, but a little down from the top of the peg tube opening)...it is not leaking to create a mess but we are worried that this may lead to complications. His doctor will be looking at it on Monday and possibly replace it.
Will he have to undergo surgery to have it replaced or stay in the hospital? I've been reading info online and it appears to be a quick procedure done in a doctor's office without surgery.
