    Some pain is normal Hayls and it does take about 2 weeks for the stoma site to recover fully, so take painkillers if and when they are needed.

    Is the site clean and normal looking, apart from having a feeding tube fitted 4 days ago

    Is it a long feeding tube or a low-profile button? If long tube, does it have a fixator (plastic triangle) near the skin?

    If you are concerned, you should contact the hospital, your GP or nurse.

    And sorry your hospital experience wasn't great

    Love Ellie.
