Dear Pals, I have had a rare complication of Peg Tubes. In October 2018, button stopped rotating and my GP sent a consult to GI surgery. Due to several GI specialists retiring and leaving our city, they were backed up by 45-60 days. A week before my appt in mid December, I got very severe abdominal pain, and no feed or fluids would go through my Peg tube. A CT Scan dx with Buried Bumper Syndrome had to have gastrosciopic surgery, and new Peg with button was inserted. Within days developed a serious infection in the wall of my stomach, thankfully no leakage in Peritonium. BBS is a medical emergency!
