    We're having problems. UK fit different to Portugal fit. I'm having to use pliers to get things apart. Nightmare. 😩

    Hi heather, it’s probably coming from further down where the connector thins out, it happens to mine quite often I always have spare to change them over your peg nurse will probably show you how to do this. Hope this helps Janette x

    PEG tube leaking/damaged

    Last night when I was trying to get medication and water down my PEG tube, it all poured out on me, seems to have a leak or damaged. I tried using both endings and was sure I had screwed the tube on properly. Has anyone else had that experience? District nurse trying to locate a PEG nurse
