      My feeding tube was inserted above your bellv button, painless to jnsert and take out. I had stage 2 tongue and stage 4
      I my treatment was chemo radiation and surgery. I'll be very honest with you is wan't easy but but all of the team did a great job . now i am 4 ples years cancer free and feel great. If i can be any help to you just let me know.
      GOOD LUCK,

      I had this cancer, this is IMPORTANT, as the others have told you, make sure the feeding tube goes into the stomach, I had a friend with this same cancer also, and they put the tube up through his nose, can you believe that? I could not. You will get through this, just takes time, for me about 4-5 months and I am cancer free. Make yourself take the 8 cans of Insure liquid, as this is all you will be able to consume for a while, I lost 53 lbs, and started making myself do 8 cans a day, then things started turning around. Well, my fiancee made me take the 8 cans. God will get you through this! Tim

      in your stomach. you will have a thin tube coming out of your stomach. when they take it out they just pull it out
