I've been able to maintain my weight without using the J TUbe so I went in yesterday and had it removed. Very quick and simple and it was longer than I expected it to be when it came out. There was like 6 inches of it that was actually in my intestine. There was no pain with it coming out whatsoever and I just have to keep a bandage over the spot it was for a couple of days. I'm posting this the night after removal and the hole has already closed up.
It feels good to finally be tube free with the J Tube being the last one to finally come out.
I have 2 or 3 cases of formula the pole that I hung the bags from, a Backpack that was for the Enteral system I was being fed by and a few bags. Does anyone know of a place where you can donate the extra stuff like this. I guess I could drink the Isopur Formula since it is vanilla flavored but I'm enjoying real food too much right now.
