I have a feeding tube and today it making me feel uncomfortable (inside the stomach). I ate soupy noodle then felt a little quiesy but did not throw up. The balloon or inside part of the feeding tube in the stomach has been turning, poking, throbbing...lots of movements. Felt like the stomach is trying to digest it thinking it is food or something. This has been occuring off and on but now seems to be constant since today.
Any thought on this issue? Is it normal? What to be done.
Also, on the outside of the tube where it exits the skin, I have a smooth round outgrowth of the skin surronding half of the tube. It looks like the inside out of the skin content. Is this normal or should there be just a hole? It is painless though and no bleeding.
