SOS G TUBE QUESTION: I have two tears in my g tube that I noticed today and only seem to be getting larger. I’ve put waterproof tape around them but I am still leaking a bit.
Does this mean I need to have a new tube installed?
I hateee doctor’s visits- How long can I hold out till I have to call my doctor?
And do you have any recommendations as to how I can stop the leaking between now and when I have another g-tube installed? 
Any and all replies would be GREATLY appreciated xx

I hereby pledge to smile every day despite having an ileostomy, feeding tube, and port in my chest. I also state my refusal to wear hospital gowns during my frequent hospitalizations.
Because being sick is not an excuse to be or look anything less than fabulous.
