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![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]: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.
