Reply to "peg feeding leaks again!"

Dear Caroline/Jennie, Is the tube leaking from the Stome end or the "feeding" end. When we had this problem, & once the Docs had checked there was no abdominal obstruction, we ensured we flushed 50mls water through the tube before a feed & 50mls after the feed. A weekly flush with Coca Cola or Soda water and the problem was solved.
Hope this is of help, best wishes.
