The old g-tube was a Nutriport gastronomy system from Kendall size 12Fr and 1,2 cm was working fine and we did not had any important issues while using it for more than 6 months. The new gastronomy placed is Mickey from Kimberly Clark size 14Fr with 1,2 cm. The first impression is that the new type of g-tube is much easier to use due to its system of attaching/detaching the feeding extension.
The changing procedure went relatively smooth and the only issue was while removing the old g-tube because this had a problem with the valve that allowed the balloon that is holding it inside to be deflated. This issue was probably due to the extended time of usage of the g-tube. We where lucky that it was changed by someone with skills and experience and the problem was solved without trips to hospital.
Almost everything else is good with me, beside the g-tube that was solved I have a small big problem with the skin around the trach, but this does not seem to affect my mood, I still sing with Fiona, I am still preparing the food, and I am reading a looooooot of stories. I have some treatment prescribed and I think this will be solved soon, please pray for this!
