The Feeding Tube

My husband went in today to have a feeding tube inserted. Since he is already so thin, his doctor decided it was best to have it done now before he got to sick to undergo the operation.

I have entered into a world like no other and I don't know what to expect next.

His first dose of chemo is on Monday.

Re: The Feeding Tube

my husband is 55 and he had a really bad weekend with the feeding tube. His chemo start tomorrow. He had the tube because he is so thin. Now he saying his wrists hurts. Does that mean anything to anyone?
