SamSamWanted to start a new thread for you so my response/question wouldn't get lost in the other thread.....
What kind of G tube do you have??? What kind of issues are you having? I've got pretty good experience and can probably solve your problem or at least help.
Is the extension coming undone at night time?? Or is the Y port med port popping open at night time??
To solve that if you have a MicKey button you need a specific extension called a Right Angle Bolus Secure Lok Extension. Yes, LOK is spelled that way. I can get a order # for you if you want it....just let me know.
As long as you don't have to give any meds at night time, there is absolutely NO need to use a Y port extension. I will tell you to keep some Y ports handy, they are GREAT when your child is sick at night and you need to give Tylenol without waking them up....LOL May as well take advantage of that feeding tube, right!!!
