Linden's tube got pulled out 10 days ago, spent a few days in the hospital and got it replaced last tuesday. Well for the past three days he's been complaining of some pretty extreme stoma pain. At first that's all it was. Yesterday I loosened it a little so that I could look at it and see if there was anything in there bothering him and blood started pouring out his stoma. We cleaned it, and I left it a bit loose and stuck some allyven under the disk. This morning he's screaming because it hurts so bad and it's still bleeding. I have a call in to the dr and I'm sure we're going to have to go in, but I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what this might be. Could infection make it bleed like that?
