    Well I had to get surgery yesterday to get my J-tube replaced.It bursted when I tried to flush. It had gotten so much gook in it(curdled tube feed) that it had over a foot of the tube blocked with it and it had turned black! It was a rather painful procedure,they had to manipulate my j-tube and take it out and put the new one in and all.

    Now I find out your supposed to get them routinely replaced every 3 months,and whenever it clogs get them to go and take you to radiolagy to get it un-clogged.

    And today even through the 800mg of motrin I take every 6 hrs. I had horrible shoulder pain like I was carrying 200 lb weights on them,this pain spread to my shoulder blade as well,and then in my chest it felt like a person was takeing a butchers knife and jabbing and twisting it in my chest!:O It was horrible! I get the shoulder pain lately all the time. But this chest pain is new. We assume it is gall stones and I will make an apointment with the doctor I guess or if it happens again go to the ER for an ultra sound. It was truely gruesomely painful but thankfully was passing then coming back again etc.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Sorry to hear about that Noah. I know this seems like it'll never get better but I'm sure it will with time. You have definitely been a trooper about it all. Long term illness is no fun. But I'm glad you can at least get on the computer with us now.

    Hang in there! Hope you don't have gallstones.
