Feb 17, 2016 4:21 AM

So I still haven't slept...around 3:30am my feedinging tube bag needed to be refilled so I woke my mom up she got a new can to put in and got a flush and some medicine for me...as we went to do the last flush....it wouldn't work...its clogged....again....I had gotten a new tube put in about 2 weeks ago after it got badly clogged(i never updated anyone about it I just have been having some bad pain days) Its now 5:15am. After a few hours of trying all the tricks to get it unclogged...it just won't unclog. So we called the 24 hour nurses and the nurse said I need to go to the ER to see if it can be unclogged with their declogging solution(which the last time it would not work which is why I got a new tube put in) so the first time I got a tube in I was asleep because they needed to do some biopsys so I was put to sleep. The last time I went to the er for the clog (about 2 weeks ago) I was awake because I did not want to stay over night. Putting the tube in was not too big of a problem. (i have a corpac so there is this gauze like material that goes behind your septum area and holds the tube in) well the way they do that is by putting two magnets, one with the gauze, in both nostrils and go all the way into the back of your septum....and this....this hurts a lot. I was screaming in pain, and swearing, which I feel bad for btw. It took threw tried because the first two tried were done by a like damn training doctor or some thing. If I have to get a new one put in today I dont know of I want to just get put to sleep so its not painful and have to stay in the hospital for the night, or get it down awake and go home afterwards....I'm just hoping they can get it unclogged....I've been crying for almost 2 hours now just from stress I feel dizzy and feel like I'm going to faint because whenever I get paniced I faint. So yeah. Fml right now honestly.

Jenna thatas horrible and I'm.sorry your have to expert this. I'm hopeful you get it unclogged and y be in mess pain.

Jenna I wish that you would have called me on my cell!! I would have kept you company for as long as you needed. That's a nightmare that you have to go through this!! How often do you have to flush the tube? I guess I had missed somethings as I thought that you had the one that was directly into your stomach. I have had tubes put into my stomach each time I was admitted with stomach trouble before they took out my gallbladder and I couldn't stop throwing up. It was the most unpleasant thing I had to do. It did hurt, they made my nose bleed profusely (both sides). I hope it all goes well... Please try to relax and I'll be with you. Sending you lots of love and {{{Hugs}}}. You got this!! 💕🙏🏻🌻

My nose bleeds a lot with this too. We are leaving soon to go and I want them to give me a peg tube because this damn thing is just terrible.

Feb 17, 2016 6:56 AM

Oh Jenna, I'm so sorry! That sounds absolutely horrible. I had septum surgery years ago and it hurt after, but I had no idea how they had packed me. I feel so bad for you, because at least I was asleep. Sending you gentle hugs! 🙂🙏💕🌼

I'm at the er now. I think of I have to get a new tube I'm going to do it awake. I am horribly uncomfortable staying in hospitals even for a night. Ice already had an anxiety attack on the way just thinking about being here. I just can't handle it.

Feb 17, 2016 7:54 AM

I'm with you Jenna!! My fingers are crossed that it's not as bad as you had before and sending positive vibes and prayers. I love you bunches and my arms are right around you. {{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻

Feb 17, 2016 7:57 AM

Thank you So much! <3 only a 5 minute wait to get a bed! Yayyy

Feb 17, 2016 9:46 AM

Jenna, I am sorry that you have to endure this. You are in my thoughts. Beets.

Feb 17, 2016 10:33 AM

Well I'm getting a new tube. The clog is just too bad. Im deciding to stay awake for them to do it, because if I stay in the hospital I will be in a worse condition due to panic attacks and honestly we all know how chronic illness is treated by certain nurses and I just can't deal with that tonight.

Feb 17, 2016 10:41 AM

I completely understand. Know my hand is there.. You hang onto it!! I'm holding you tight in protection and asking God to surround you with his light. I had that kind of tube and it was very uncomfortable awake but not as bad as I expected. Believe me I wouldn't want to do it again but if I had to..

You r a strong young lady Jenna

Jenna I am praying for you also. I cared for my father many years ago who had a peg tube and G-tube. Unfortunately his tube became clogged a couple times. I am with you holding your hand. I find when I have to go to the hospital if I take some of my favorite music with me it helps calm me.
Where are you located?

On my way home just got the tube in, and got the core Pac put in, which was hell. But i was able to get atavan which has called me down so much. The nurse I had was actually super nice, it took many tries to get the core pac in, but after putting A BUNCH of lidocaine in my nostrils I was able to get it done. Now I just dread the car ride home with my grandfather.

I hope you are resting and feeling better. Thank Goodness for all the support here. I'm sorry you are going through this and I hope a better solution will come very soon. You are in my thoughts.

Feb 17, 2016 7:41 PM
