I was on TPN 24/7 last year for 6 months before I had to put a stop to it as I suffered by 5th bout of septicemia (i.e., severe bacteremia) in as many months. I went back down to 70 pounds so my doctors just inserted a PEG tube a little over 2 weeks ago. I have been having problems with it since. Not only do I have trouble breathing by the end of the day (which has caused me to stop infusing for a day or two here and there), but my stomach contents (e.g., formula or other liquids), keep backing up in the PEG tube itself almost immediately after infusing/ingesting. I know when this happens for I can smell it before I even look at it. As such, I keep flushing the line about every hour. Is this normal?
