    Hi Steve;

    I was amending my post so have included your answer into that.

    Just ask if you would like more info.

    Love Terry

    I would recommend that you have a PEG operation rather than a RIG.

    Hi Norman;

    I don't think your picture is correct and it is labeled wrong. I'm no expert but I believe it shows the RIG procedure.

    I think that there is a soft plastic disc on the inside and not any balloon. The balloon systems last about four months before needing replacing where the discs last for three years or more. Balloons require small maintenance every week as well.

    I have been told by my specialist that there are slightly more problems after the RIG procedure than a PEG one.

    Hospitals won't do a RIG if your breathing is poor and they will opt for a RIG or maybe PIG as they can resuscitate you easier and don't have to lay you flat.

    Love Terry

    Steve have amended this post to explain my views.

    Just to put things in perspective, HFCS High Fructose Corn Syrup, is NOT used in feeds this side of the Atlantic.
    Ignore Eric’s scaremongering about HFCS, whatever about his “Liquid Hope” that he is flogging.

    started a topic 'Liquid Hope' - PEG and nutrition

    'Liquid Hope' - PEG and nutrition

    Here is a post from a blog I found interesting and thought provoking.

    In Liquid Hope Eric discusses something that strikes at the heart of life, nutrition. He had problems with the liquids being trickled down his PEG. Plenty of food for though, particularly if your lunch comes down a tube.

    I'd be really interested in your thoughts guys... I'm awaiting a date with the endoscope operative.
