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???
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
