    Hi @colet :) Thanks for opening up a conversation about feeding tubes! It's not something I've experienced myself, so I can't contribute in the way. Would you like to start us off by telling us a little about your experience with your feeding tube?

    Hi @colet I had a NG/feeding tube for about 5 or 6 weeks in 2018. I much prefer them being removed than being put in or changed. Very grateful for them though! :)
