I have a nephrostomy tube just placed on my right. How do I sleep with it? Secure it to my leg, or hang it off the bed? Also can I sleep on my back?
Sleep on left: You will likely be most comfortable sleeping on your left side if possible. Sleeping on your back may be possible if extra dressings are placed to pad the area around the tube. It is not a good idea to hang the tube off the bed as it this tension might dislodge the tube internally and/or cause pain. Best to lay bag beside you in bed and do not anchor to anything in case you turn in your sleep

Depends: This is delicate work, involving cutting a hole in a sensitive ear drum after cleaning & sanitizing the ear canal, then any mucous or debris is suctioned out of the middle ear with a vacuum that sounds like a train bearing down on you. I suppose an adult might want to tough it out awake, understanding that any movement might mess things up, but it wouldn't work for infants/kids.See 1 more doctor answer

If you wear a nose tube with oxygen when asleep, could this cause dry or sore throat? Can it cause dry mouth?
Yes, yes on both: Usually there is a water moisturizer along with the oxygen in the machine that you can turn on. If there isn't, ask for one that does. You do not want dry mouth because this condition can cause rampant tooth decay. Some medications will cause dry mouth. If this happens, ask your physician or dentist to prescribe biotene mouth rinse and saliva replacement. You must meticulously clean your teeth.See 2 more doctor answers
