Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You will need to deflate completely and then try to push it in.
If you feel significant resistance, you stop right there to avoid any perforation of intestine.
And you will need to contact your doctor about it.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
More common cause is the resistance against the bowel wall or the Tube got kinked at the nasopharygeal junction.
Since you are able to push back in, you can keep it inflated.
Not likely as long as you have inflated back up.
For what reason you have the tube inserted?
Before you do anything, Please tell me why has the tube been placed?
Ok thanks for the info.
So this is for nose bleeding not GI bleeding.
In that case, yuo should not deflate it.
The purpose of the balloon is to maintain pressure to prevent any further bleeding.
Do not push it too much as that increases the risk of sloughing off the cauterized area.
Little bit of displacement is fine should not be a problem.
Better leave it alone since no bleeding any further.
Please remember I have not seen you or examined you --Had i examined you this will be a cake walk.
But when communicating through typing that too without any talking, this may be a barrier at times.
Anyway, your well being is most important.
You will recover in next few days.
