    Eating with nippy

    Hi all,
    I have been having some difficulty eating , wi th coughing and phlegm etc , so much so that I decide to have a PEG in a couple of weeks time. However I was practicing using a nose mask on my nippy (for the PEG procedure) and found I could drink and eat with it on pretty much normally with no coughing or tiredness and itís been great, I can eat anything now at the same speed I always could - worth a try if you have a nose mask.....

    Hi KT100;

    Thanks for sharing that with us as we often don't think of that.

    Great that it's working so well for you and it is surprising what benefits good breathing and ventilation has.

    Best wishes for your feeding tube opp.

    Love Terry
