I haven't pulled it or anything, but today I noticed a little like tubular thing coming out of the exit site.

Does anyone has experience with this?

Please, reply. I'm terrified. I'm shaking and crying here

Hi been taking care of my blind father so I understand. The pd tube scretches and comes out very little at certain days and it can take a couple of months maybe years. It depends on how you move usually, most often when you are sleeping. Just don't sleep on your belly.

just don't worry too much it's a common thing that happens. I am pretty sure during your next visit your nurse will say its good.

That is normal. Do not be afraid. Just be careful not to sleep while your catherer is in a dangerous position. You can ask your doctor if you still feel uncomfortable.

Thanks for the replies!

The surgeon decided to give me a new exit site. I had the surgery on Monday. They changed my prescription to low-dose.
But there has been bleeding from the exit site for a couple of nights. Is this normal?

Yes, some bleeding is normal but it shouldn't last long. If it does, call your Dr. Also, it would be a good idea to firmly tape in place at night so any movement isn't going to pull on it. Get some 2" paper tape.
