Hi, my nephew is currently in the hospital with pneumonia and has failed a swallowing test and say that is what is contributing to him keep getting pneumonia. So to start they have put a feeding tube through his nose and in 2-3 weeks want to retest.
I have a lot of questions but to start…
- Can they taste the food?
- How do you make the adjustment when they come home to make it easier on them? Like when you and the rest of the family eat, etc.?
- Were you or your child (when they got a feeding tube in stomach) able to go to school? That is the bad thing here is he is in his senior year and very close to graduating.
Any other suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated because right now we are just lost.
