I have been asked this question in a different forum but don't feel qualified to answer it.
Hoping some on here may help.
"Hello I am the wife and caregiver of a Esophageal cancer patient who is on a peg line,(12-15 hours a day). He is having some problems with clogging and having the line blown out of the tube.
I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? I can attest to the fact that this is not good in the middle of the night when sleeping and the line continues to pump.
Also we wanted to ask if it is okay for a person with a peg tube to eat by mouth while the peg tube is in use?
Any advise would be welcome.
