In hospital for observation due to failed gastrostony tube. Missed 2rad. Tx
had laparoscopy placement Monday was in much pain from it and by 11am it had deflated & pulled out so went to er and resident surgeon put foley cath in as temp measure to keep holes open admitted to room at 3 am after they x ray and put iodine into cath to be sure was in right place. Next day foley cath in stomach fell out was no inflated, so I put it back in As best I could. Later surgeon took me to radiology to replace tube with a permanent tube. He numbed the area which hurt but was unable to locate the stomach hole so after 3 x and 2 notes in hospital no tube.
Mouth has deteriorated further and magic mouthwash does little for tongue ulcers. I finally did order some mugard which will come thur. Hoping it will help. Very frustrated and discouraged at this point. only 1 and 1/2 weeks of rad so far and not having tolerable side effects. having to take pain med to get thru it.
