How long does it take a g tube site to heal after removal and how long is leaking considered normal?

In brief: Depends on how

long it's been in, and what type of tube it is.
Typically should heal pretty quickly within a week or two, but sometimes can take longer. A small amount of drainage early on is normal, but if it is persistent or a large amount see your surgeon.
