There was a difference in drainage when Drake was up and moving about. From what the Drs. told me that once Drake was healed he would not leak much and not require any type of bandage around the g-tube. Drake's g-tube was miss placed and blocked the enterance to his intestines. He had a specially made g-tube to allow his feeds to pass thru the tube into his intestines. Therefore Drake leaked everyday, when he was getting sick his first sign was extra leakeage. I took white wash cloths (so they could be bleached to sanitize and reuse) cut them in fourths, then cut a slit 1/2 way down one side. I sewed around all of the edges to keep the cloth from unraveling. At the top of the slit I put velcro to close the slit. That way I opened it up put it around the g-tube velcroed it shut, then took a long sleeve of surgilast and put on Drake to hold the cloth in place with out using any tape. Drake is very sensitive to tape on his skin. During the day I would check him and change to keep the cloth dry. Some days he would never need changing, some chancged twice and other days I was constently changing. This also saved on the leakage staining his shirts. If you need I have pictures some where. I can find them and post them. Hope this helps.
