Re: Impedence Testing...
I feel your pain! It was hard for me to eat as well because of the tube moving everytime I swallowed. I just took small bites of food. That was really the only thing that made it tolerable while eating. And take small sips of liquids rather than large amounts. That way the smaller the food or liquid going down, the less force you to need to swallow, therefore the less the tube moves. I also ended up taking tylenol pm before bed. And it helped me relax enough to sleep, but didn't knock me out to the point where I didn't realize when I was having acid reflux. Assuming that you have to push a button when you have an "episode" of something, otherwise, being knocked out wouldn't be a big deal. But you probably have to push a button if you feel something. Hang in there though! It will be out before you know it. But maybe by the time you read this, you will have already been able to take it out...so if that's the case...how did it go taking it out? It wasn't bad at all, was it?
