    Help KS,
    There was some doubt if Peter, my husband, could have PEg procedure because of his breathing and dependence on PEG. MND nurse and gastroenterologist mention gastro nasal feeding. This involves food being fed into the stomach via the nose. I was not impressed and pleased he was able to have the PEG procedure. Two week s after leaving hospital he is really struggling to eat and I am relieved that we have the PEG to ensure adequate nutrition.

    My mum died from peritonitis as a result of a leaky peg inserted at papworth, two and a half days after insertion. She was 70 and 13 months post diagnosis with good upper body strength.
