Acid Reflux because of Gastrostomy.
My daughter Angela HAD severe acid reflux after she had her PEG fitted. Another Mum fed her child real food and juices, liquidized, sieved and then syringed down his PEG. I tried it as a last resort before going down the fundo road, not expecting much. Success, immediately. I was scared to take her off her 3 different types of reflux medicine at first, but now she hasn't had any for 2 years. The SCOPE carers also noticed how well my daughter was and have stood by me all through the difficult journey that we have had, standing up to our dietician, who tried to turn our doctors against the idea. The door is now open, thanks to SCOPE. The carers are now allowed to feed pureed food, once a risk assessment etc etc has been done.If anyone needs any advice on how to prepare real food so that it can go through your childs PEG, I will gladly help if I can. It has changed my daughters life and our families. She was living in a world of misery, And so were the rest of us, constantly trying to ease her pain. We couldn't go anywhere, or do anything, it got that bad. My only regret is that I'd not heard of this earlier.
