Hey all, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and now I’m in the hospital (currently 5 days) and I just had to get an NG because they wouldn’t allow me to eat but wanted me to have some form of nutrition. The pancreatitis was caused by my gallstones and while I’m extremely thankful to be treated because the pain was awful, I am so uncomfortable!
This NG tube has my throat feeling like there’s needles all around it, I can’t wait to get it out!! I know it’ll be just as uncomfortable to get it out as it was going in but I’m dying for some release. My levels seem to be getting better so hopefully it’ll be coming out but does anyone have some tips to make it more comfortable? It feels weird to put ice chips in my mouth or anything else but I guess I’ll have to do that. Oh, and the flushes! They feel so weird when they happen because the water is so cold. I am so ready to go home to my nice and comfy bed.
