Since Christmas I have put on another stone on and am now 8 stone! I see a dietician for my PEG who keeps an eye on my feed. I see her every couple of months and each time she has been pleased with my progress and has reduced my feed gradually over the months from 7 days a week to 6 and then 5 nights and so on. So far I’m on 3 feeds a week. I do worry that I might lose weight once my PEG has been removed but there's no way my PEG will be removed until I’ve spent 3 months without the feed to make sure I can maintain my weight. Hopefully I will be able to; I just have to keep eating little meals but often and lots of snacks!
What happened last year gave me a lot to think about, how lucky I am and have a great family who support me. I don’t really venture out of the house most nights and enjoy time with my family watching TV. I have a great set of friends who are always there and we can go for a meal or just a trip to the cinema. I hope maybe one day I’ll find a lovely boyfriend too!
