Anyone else have nose bleeds after having a gastric tube in their nostril? Big nose bleed yesterday and today out of same nostril that the gastric tube was placed in. We had to call 911 and go to emerg this morning.....they didnt do anything since we finally got the bleeding stopped.

My nose was rather tender and I had little bleeds when I blew my nose too hard. I put bacitracine(sp)Polysporin in Canada) in nostrils to keep them moist and heal.

Hope you get it under control soon.
