This patient had a G-J tube inserted two weeks ago. Is it possible to pop out of the body on its own after two weeks? Would the symptom of diarrhea caused by colon spasms produce enough pressure to pop out both the balloon type and bumper type feeding tube? Please clarify.Related Questions:

Thank you doctor,
I am a nurse. I heard a pop and the feeding tube came out on its own. It was not pulled out by the patient, whom I had been watching on a 1:1 assignment. Also, the patient has diarrhea, which is a symptom of colon spasm. Can this cause pressure on the tube to pop out?
