Thanks to those who responded to my concerns on having a feeding tube. I had surgery 2 weeks ago. Because of previous stomach surgery mine was a little more involved and required removing adhesions etc but the tube is in and functional. The best thing is I am finally at home! I have been taking feedings at night using a pump so I only need to do water and meds during the day. The incision is healing but I do have some pain at the site where the tub enters. Is that common? Does it go away eventually? Its usually bearable but I am looking forward to getting off of pain medication.
