Re: please advise about Naso and gastric tube

BB,

You really need to talk to her doctor about the whole thing. Is she dying or if she needs hospice? Is there any other way to treat her or if they can still treat her? It is up to the doctor. You are not clear about what her diagnosis is so we cannot tell you what to do.
But do talk to her doctor in details and see if they think she can be saved or she is near death. Hospice can stop feeding tube, but aggressive treatments will allow these tubes to be tried on her while they figure out how to save her life.
In hospice given any disease, no treatments will be given and thus no feeding tubes.

Regards,
Nina
