Well, my dad did get the feeding tube. He has a G tube instead of the J tube. The Dr. told my parents the reason for this is because the J-tube is smaller and can not get enough nutrition in him. Since having the tube, he has been really sick to his stomache and throws up often, if he doesn't he feels like he is going to. Because of this, they are putting him on a pump that will give him his "food" slowly over 24 hours. Is anyone familiar with this?
thanks for your insight as always....
