I forgot, my husband had been to the surgeon a month prior as he was having inflammation and irritation around the site, the surgeon tried to increase the diameter around the tube so it could drain better or something. It didnt really work that well, ultimately the gtube was replaced. Maybe it hurt when he took it out because the surrounding tissue was already sore and irritated? I'm not sure.

Hi folks,my dangler was replaced today with on small problem, the anchor part in my stomach broke off so the doctor had to go in to my stomach and retrieve it. Mild sedative and the missing part was located and removed,like the doctor said after four years the tube became brittle and broke.All is good now and no pain when the old dangler broke.

Was it replaced by something with a balloon?
