My LO recently got a PEG/G-Tube put in his belly for his feeds. He was one week from coming home and this was supposed to be the last big thing.
Well, the roller coaster continues. Since the PEG was put in, he has vomited all of his feedings. They tried slowing down the feeds over hours and nothing has seemed to work. He was taking 50ccs from a bottle and the rest went through an Ng tube before that. He barely vomited at all. Since then all vomit, no taking a bottle. He was good before the tube.
First they thought it could be an infection or something, but all of the tests came back negative. For some reason, the doctors seem puzzled...I can't imagine its the first time they have seen this. I imagine its the tube causing some sort of problem/pressure/feeling in baby's belly.
Please let me know if anyone has had the same experience or found a solution to it.
