Ok all you tube Mom's. As you all know V has his new tube site, finally, and all has been well.
Except for the elongated stay in the hospital, and the TWO.. yes, two times that it's been PULLED OUT ALREADY!!
Thank goodness this stoma seems pretty resilient, but we do seem to have one very prominent issue. One that we just can't seem to get under control.
... granulation tissue. ick.
It's been a couple of years since our last G tube adventure and he did have quite a bit of granulation tissue with that go-around but eventually we got it under control.
Now if I could just remember how we did it.
His tissue is pretty bad right now, something like an enormous flesh donut. Mmm.. good stuff.
For a week now we've been religious with the steroid cream. I don't want to over do it though because too much steroid cream can actually thin the skin.
Our other course of action has been silver nitrate. We've done that three times now and still nothing.
I'm beginning to think this stuff feeds off my frustration. It's just getting bigger.
Has anyone out there found the magic cure by any chance???
