Those of you that have feeding tube or had, and had to do it yourself... I get delivery of my Ensure once a month, I get food, syringes, and 2 bottles of Saline solution along with qauze bandges for the peg.
Question is, WHAT THE HECK IS SALINE FOR? I have been flushing with 1 60cc of tap water, food, and than 3 60ccs in a row every feeding so I keep my water level up for hydration. I use the plunger to push last water through at night, suck back make sure no clog or blood push back in and close up shop.
Wound long since healed so am I supposed to use this to flush, I don't think I could stand all that salt?
I said STUPID QUESTION?
P.S. new swallow study to see if first was a fluke(NOT) or if made any progress. Pockets and prayers please!
