From the 4th till 8th February it was Feeding Tube Awareness Week where people all over the world shared there experiences of having a feeding tube, why they are so important, different feeding tubes that are used and spreading overall awareness of feeding tubes.
As I’ve mentioned in a blog post a couple of years ago, Me & My Disability part 3, I have had a gastrostomy tube surgical inserted into my stomach for over 10 years now. It’s something that I’ve learnt to live with over the years and as I am getting older, to embrace it and help to spread awareness.
To help spread feeding tube awareness I filmed a Q&A video for my YouTube channel, which you can find below answering questions from followers on social media and questions I have been asked throughout my day to day life. Please if you have an more questions that I haven’t covered in my video then leave a comment and I will answer the best that I can.
