    Feeding Tube

    Hi all! I am 3 months post op TMJR and Le Forte I and am still in a great deal of pain and unable to chew. I have not chewed in over a year and am 50lbs underweight. I have been to three nutritionists and tried everything to gain weight but nothing is working. I am having a very rough recovery and am not healing fast due to poor nutrition. My dr briefly mentioned a feeding tube several weeks ago and I am now seriously considering it so I can move forward!
    Has anyone had any experiences with feeding tubes (jaw related or not)? I have researched and believe the kind directly to my stomach would be best, especially with my sore nose from surgery, and I would like to still be able to eat what I can.
    Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
