TPN Sleeve leak



Recommended Posts

I have a leak in my sleeve which has lead to me being on TPN and blood infection. On my 3rd week. Also have a drain in place draining an abscess. I can’t wait to eat again. Anyone else ever experience this?

I had gastric sleeve on October 17, 2019. I didn’t know I had a leak for almost 2 weeks. Being on TPN feels so restrictive. I also have a drain on my left side. Saturday will be 4 weeks of TPN. I had a swallow test two days ago, and they said they saw no leak, which is hard to believe, because my drain still collects Fluid, and because I take OTC sleep meds that are blue, and the drain has blue in it after I take one of those pills.
I am actually hungry, it’s so hard to be around food.
I never in knew how bad it could be.
I would like to know how long most people are on TPN?
