Feeding tube awareness week!
It's feeding tube awareness week! and although i dont have one A.I did have 2 at one point when i was admitted and B. So many of my friends do!!
Imagine if you woke up morning and couldn't eat without extreme pain and throwing up?
Imagine getting a tube pushed down your nose.
Imagine getting a tube placed into your stomach.
Imagine Never eating again.
So many of my friends deal with this. When i had my 2 NGs it wasnt *that* big deal because One was for Go-lytly and the other for Venting so it was only for a few days. But my friends have had theres for years. YEARS!!!
Where your only nutrion is Baby type formula through a bag that pumps into your stomach.
Sometimes people can't even handle Feeds so they have a Line placed into a major artery for TPN and/or Fluids.
It's time to make awareness for Feeding tubes and the reasons to get them Including Gastroparesis,Crohn's,Anoxreia(Eating disorders in general),Malnutrion,Premeture birth, cancer the lists goes on and on.
