My husband was newly diagnosed with a cancer of the nasopharnyx. The doctors are planning to insert a tube into his abdominal cavity to help him, should he need it, take nourishement during his treatments. Has anyone had this done and are there any side effects from having it done. He shudders at the fact that he will have a tube but the doctors assure him it is in his best interest. Comments anyone.
