    Hello Pain my old friend........

    JTube Clog/Splash

    Thanks! Good to know. But it's a moot point for me now, as I am retired by about 5-6 years now. I hope not to have to do any more tube feeding or give meds that way. My problem then was I trying to rush. Instead I made it much harder on myself. The p...

    Hello Pain my old friend........

    I am sorry you are in so much pain. You are not able to work and need to apply for social security disability. That will open your treatment options. When it comes to pain.. you gotta do what you gotta do. There is no ceiling for morphine. Get wha...

    Hello Pain my old friend........

    I have taken Opiodes off and on for the last 15 years. Never had a problem with addiction, never missused and made the decion on my own to stop them. Ibuprophen is a no go for me due to gastro issues - I have a pain specialist I see regularly, get ma...
  14. Hello Pain my old friend........

    I had pain issues also that was not managed correctly and I turned to opiates would lead me into addiction and a suspended license. I wish I had a good alternative for you. Maybe check out fb groups on chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, and there's one call...

    Hello Pain my old friend........

    Hppy, I am sorry you are enduring this pain. Heat and topical analgesics, plus rolling and stretching take the edge off for my chronic hamstring pain. I can't get a good answer for what is causing it, and I am tired of being treated like I am seeking...

    Hello Pain my old friend........

    Last time I went to France, though I didn't have pain, I had an awful time with restless legs. VERY uncomfortable!! On the trip back, I upgraded to first class, so I could recline and remove my shoes and be comfy. It made ALL the difference! What...

    Opioid Dependance

    There is a video on TikTok showing a nurse bent over a med cart either high or overworked exhausted unsure but the point is how so many are suggesting she shouldn’t be passing meds or it’s funny when I almost cried seeing this as a reminder of that p...

    Yup. But the worst was the formula and cough syrup, I promise! Live and learn!

    Washing down GT or JT meds with formula is another way to clog up the tube. Use water.

    JTube Clog/Splash

    Here's a helpful hint I learned the hard way: don't do a J-tube-feeding, then add some Cough Syrup on top of it, because the mix makes it not want to go through. The formula got semi-solid and it was a bee-yotch to clear. Soda did not help AT ALL! I...

    It's unlikely you will catch anything. Still, you should report it.
  24. JTube Clog/Splash

    Hello everyone, first let me start by saying, I think I am just being paranoid and I definitely will wear my glasses for g/j tube care in the future. I was administering medication through JTube, when I went to flush prior to, with saline it was clog...
