View Full Version : Uncomfortable trach tube

30th July 2013, 12:13
Not sure whether or not this is the correct forum to post this. But I am looking for info. Posted on the ALSTDI forum but only one answer and it didn't really answer my question.

Hubby trached and vented in February due to aspirated pneumonia. The tube into his throat is extremely uncomfortable after all this time. If it is touched too aggressively, he will start a coughing jag that will exhaust him. I just have to wonder if this is normal.

They are currently trying to wean him off the vent for daytime.

Thanks for your help
