Can anyone advise as to the difference between a J tube and a PEG tube. I know that a Jtube is inserted in the small intestine and Peg in the stomach, but as to which one should be done I am not sure. Our hometown doctor is wanting to put a PEG tube in. Rickie is continuing to lose weight and he (rickie) is finally considering it. I know it seems every time I read about a feeding tube here it is a being stage IV we are not looking at surgery, so perhaps that is the reason for the PEG tube. Any advice?
