Going into VA hosp on wed 28 to have peg replaced.
Got infection at site hole and dr said time to replace that the button inside holding tube in place is probably breaking down as its been a year.
Gonna get same kind but wondered about the outside button.
It never stops being fun this BS nightmare
Love ya all

Hi chally, do you have dangling tube or little button. I love my mic key button. Dr ripped out my original ad replaced with button. No big deal.

Chally the mic key button also has the balloon on the inside so will last about as long as the dangler.

The bard button has a hard bumper on the inside that will last for years :)

Tell 'em to take good care of you when they replace the thing, we need you back good as new!

Is this your secund tube after they replaced the initial one?

Reading about the topic before the placement I thought that the buttons sound pretty sexy and I advertised them to my PALS as an option. But now I find the dangler quite handy because I can just fumble with it real quick and give him a drink of water without unwrapping him in front of an audience or interrupting him in making the best use of Netflix.
