Button or no button…? August 27, 2009

Posted by loz121 in Uncategorized.
My mum was takling to Newacastle hospital this morning, she was tellling her about my tube PEG, the nurse told my mum, in shock that do i really have the tube PEG at the age of 24?? and that I shouldn’t have to put up with having a tube one at my age. So they were talking about the possiblity of giving me a”button” PEG which is one without a tube and less horrible to look at really… which is always a blessing.
The only thing I’m NOT looking forward to is having the local anesthetic to “yank” it out! and put the new one in…
I know it’s only in the disccusion mode at the moment though but I was hoping I wouldn’t have to have the PEG in long but as time goes on and it seems it is getting more possible it may be a permenant fixture of me for the time being. Oh well!
