I've really been wondering if theres anyone else here that has a feeding tube? I have had a J-Tube for 2 1/2 years. now. It has saved my life! If theres anyone on here with a feeding tube, I would love to hear your story! Sorry to ask such a personal question.

One of our bloggers - Barbs - has a feeding tube. In spite of what she has endured, she has always shared her experiences through her blogs and postings. Here are a couple of threads that she posted in regards to her tube and getting a new one recently.

Pure Agony

GI Discussion

I think if you go through her blogs, there's one about her experience last fall.

I'm glad to read that your's has helped you so much!
