I'm 6 weeks finished with rads and 8 weeks finished with erbitux on Friday (in 2 days). Still haven't gained any of my weight back. Up until 3 days ago was using g-tube for feedings in addition to eating by mouth. I decided to try and eat more by mouth and less by tube. While some things are still very painful to eat, I've found some foods that are high calorie and have fats too. So haven't used tube at all except for to just flush it out with gatorade for 3 days. Still no weight gain so at this point I see no point in keeping the peg. I don't gain with or without using it.
