J tube
My 11 daughter is getting a J tube in January to go on the ketogetic diet (for seizures) she has Gerd and motility problems (IBS, constipation etc.) and I would like to talk to anyone else whose child has a J tube.

Hi Judy, My son is now 13 and has a J-tube. His is a button inserted through his G-tube site. It has been very good for him. His weight gain is marginal with G-tube feedings as his motility isn't very good either. E-mail me if you want more information on J-tubes. Spencer has had a G-tube most of the time since he was 5 and has had a J-tube for a total of about a year. Patti

more questions
Patti- Is Spencer on continous feeds? Does he feel hungry? Do you vent him? How? Does he still have reflux? and thats just for starters! My email is judywise@stargate.net if you want to email me-We are doing the j tube to bypass the stomach because when she was on the ketogenic diet in the past (4 fats to 1 carbs) she did NOT tolerate the diet and would refuse to eat- you can imagine what that kind of diet did to her GI system I appreciate any info you are willing to share with me! Thank you, Judy
