    I don't see why not Rosemary, it won't make a difference to how your bladder drains (unless they want to tilt the table head down 😏) and you should be able to use your BiPAP throughout the procedure.

    As you said, your nurse will clarify it for you. xx

    Yes, it is possible to have the PEG procedure in a 'semi-recumbent' position but it's not standard practice, so some people might have to have it done in a different hospital or have a specialist surgeon do it in their own hospital, which may entail a wait.

    I've personally known of two people who had the procedure like that, and used BiPAP with a nasal mask. xx
    Thanks Ellie, I was lucky that Oxford could do the PEG procedure with me at 45 or so degrees. I’m just wondering if there are the same considerations when having a suprapubic catheter inserted as that is next on my list. I will ask my all-knowing MND specialist nurse.

    Rosemary6NT that's a good question for other folk. I know there is a difference between PEG and RIG procedures.

    I asked on behalf of my husband for ther cateract procedure, this question. He can be semi reclined for that, unsure for other procedures

    I would recommend, the negativity of doctors is shocking to me still.
    I guess some of them see it as non-essential if you have a Urethra catheter in good working order πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

    Thanks Dee

    I would imagine you need to be flat?

    Is it being done with a local anaesthetic, epidural or the full general? xx
    Epidural πŸ‘πŸ‘
