The surgeon looked at Peanut's g-tube today and said we are NOT moving it! There is a full fingers width between her tube and the bottom of her ribs. He said that if it gets wedged under her ribs while she's sitting, it can't do any harm where it is. If it moves closer to her ribs so that it is literally right underneath them, we will have to move it.
So we are going down a size (from 18 fr 1.7 to 18 fr 1.5) to see if that helps the leaking. If not he says we should do a g-tube study. Basically an Upper GI, with the barium going in the tube and not her mouth. So we're changing out her button this evening, we'll see if it stops the leaking.
Thank GOODNESS for no surgery!!
