Causes for pain in stomach and chest from j tube
My husband was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in Jan 2023. His cancer has spread to the top of his stomach. He has had constant bloating and pain in his stomach and chest. He is on the j tube 22hrs a day. During the 2 hours off the pain subsides. Doctors say that it is normal to have discomfort with tolerating the j tube. We have tried 3 different feed formulas to see if he could tolerate them better. He is not a candidate for radiation. Does anyone know anything that might help with the discomfort?
