Finally good news

My dietician got me in to see a new GI doc today. She knows him and has already told him the main points, we also sent him a detailled medical history yesterday.

Turns out he is one of the only GIs in Austria that know how to place direct PEJs and he teaches the technique all over Europe. I immediately liked him and this is the plan we came up with: I will be admitted to the hospital coming Monday, I will get lab tests done and an abdominal ultrasound. On Tuesday he will place the tube, and he wants to have an anesthesiologist there just in case (I am really happy about that decision). If all goes well, I will be able to start tube feeding a couple hours after surgery and go home the next day.

What  a christmas present!!!!
