Just curious how common the stupid NG tube is when having one of our surgeries?
I have a temp Ileostomy and my system was asleep for two days following my surgery. They tried to NG tube me and I pulled that sucker out both times. Worst feeling I've experienced in life so far. Do not recommend...
SOOOOO I told them to go away and I spent the next 24 hours throwing up green bile and chewing on some gum until it things jump started. The strain on the stomach while throwing up was very painful but worth it. Because my stubbornness (and denying their professional advice) worked. (I rubbed it in their face after)
So.... If I decide to get the jpouch (which I'm leaning toward) I have two more surgeries. Is this "sleeping system" a pretty common thing? Cause if I have to get that tube forced down my throat again I'm not going to be happy. I feel like this should be a conversation had prior to agreeing to have the surgery. I'd probably die happy with UC if I knew this NG tube was a thing.
Anyone had surgery without the need for the tube? Asking for future Danno.
