Well after 6 long months of roaming around with my peg tube hanging out of my tummy (affectionately known as my "doodle")i finally had it removed yesterday. As my friends & i say i was "dedoodled!" It's a weird feeling cos even though i actually hadn't been using it for feeds for awhile i still sort of miss it. I couldn't wait till the day it was gone & although i feel sort of much lighter, i think i also feel like my comfort zone has been taken away from me. I couldn't eat or tolerate fluids in my mouth for a long time during my radio/chemo treatment, and after, so i totally relied on "doodle" for everything so that's probably why i'm feeling in 2 minds about it i think???
