Keep in mind, I got the darn thing in April, but never HAD to use it till July. I've ran Coke thru it, and I flush it with warm water....but it's getting slower and slower, till today, it wouldn't work with gravity at all...I had to put the plunger in the syringe. Is this how it works? I mean, everybody starts out being able to use gravity, but as time passes we have to force it thru the tube?
I don't dare lose the use of this tube, since these mouth sores make eating and drinking impossible....and I still have to get thru this chemo with another coming the end of the month....my tube is my only option for food and water.
Do I need a new one? Have I messed this one up some how (I only do Ensure and Instant Breakfast VHC thru it)...never have done any real food thru it....
I got really spooked today when water wouldn't even flow down it.
