Your Flocare Button is a feeding tube that allows your nutrition to be fed directly into the stomach via a stoma (an artificial channel) in the wall of the abdomen.
Your Flocare Button should be replaced regularly. Its life span can vary so check with your healthcare professional how often yours should be changed.
To make sure your Flocare Button functions correctly, and to help extend its life, follow these simple steps. If you have any questions, please speak to your healthcare professional.
