    Do not eat before the operation! My husband was supposed to be having his last week but he had tea and toast at 5am and 11am they said he should go home. Hopefully next week he will have another try 😐
    everyone seems to say it goes well and no problems. I shall be thinking of you.
    love and hugs Denise xx

            Calm down and don't panic. It's a bread and butter operation. In a day or two you will wonder at why you were so nervous today. Been there and sent the postcard. x

              I had my PEG fitted last Tuesday, I was admitted to the ward late on Monday, the nurses did all the pre-op stuff, swab tests, ecg, canular etc so that I was ready to go on the Tuesday.
              I was not allowed any food on the day of the op until after the procedure had been done.
              Tuesday morning I was taken for a chest x-ray and then at 1.30pm I was taken down for the op.
              The procedure itself seemed to be over within a couple of minutes. (I think it actually took about 15)

              I too was anxious about having it done, I didn’t like the idea of having to swallow a camera, but with the sedation it was an absolute doddle and I can barely remember it.
              I was back in my room by 3pm

              Tuesday night I had some discomfort, mainly from trapped win in my bowel, but a couple of paracetamol sorted that.

              I was discharged early Wednesday afternoon.

              My stomach has been quite sore since the op, but it gets easier each day, I think that once the nurse has visited me on Friday to move the tube the soreness will subside.

              Hope this puts you at ease

                  Very useful post, AndyB. I'm on the waiting list for one and quite an anxious person. That put my mind more at ease. Thanks.

                    I should not have worried . Time was 11.35 and when I woke up it was 12.05. Told I would not be put out but I was. A bit sore for a couple of days but gone now.
                    I am having problems unscrewing the cap to flush. My daughter has been doing it. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and undoing anything causes me problems. But today I managed it! So to all about to be 'tubed' it really is nothing to worrybout

                      Why do people worry about something that hasn't happened yet? Everyone does it. 🤔

                          I've always been a worrier. I think it's a product of having an active mind. My wife says that I cross bridges that haven't even been built yet.
