Topic: PICC line for Nutrition; does it work?
We are at a low point today. My sweet Dad was going to have a feeding tube placed in his lower intestine since his stomach isn't working anymore, but the surgeons this morning said that the risks outweigh the benefits. Our last resort is a PICC line for TPN - nutrition. Had anyone been in this situation? We were really hoping to have the feeding tube so he could get stonger and perhaps continue chemo.
The news really hit him. He keeps crying while in his hospital bed. Its all so sad. The pallative care group is coming by today.
