Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
|Yep. Hang on to it. They should have you change it in front of the nurse at a follow up appt. Glad you got a straight insertion it makes it soo much eaiser to deal with than the long tube. The long tube gets int he way I have been told..LOL |
With us, I actually ahd to watch the nurse do it and then go back and cahnge it in front of her. To which she responded "I don't think you needed me here to do that did you??" I said NOPE I coudl have done it at home.
If you google you tube videos and g tube changes you will find parents how have uploaded videos of tube changes. There are a few on P2P how have them uploaded to the site for us to see. BTW we ahve a video of a 5 year old changing his onw tube. Once he got old enough he would NOT let anyone else do it...LOL
After you do it once, it's a piece of cake I promise. It sounds much scarier than it actullay is.
