My grandson has the G tube and Nissan and I think this has been the worst thing that a doctor has ever done to him. They convinced my son that he needed to have this surgery for his son to be able to feed. He also was 3 months early and had severe reflux. It did stop the reflux but his life and health iare so messed up because of this tube and Nissan that I wish they would have waited and sought another option. I am not a doctor and do not know if he would have gotten better but he is 3 now and they still will not take it out of him even though he can eat food orally now. It gets infected all of the time and hurts him terribly. You can not hold him against you because it hurts. It grows raunchy skin around it and  stops him from developing normally. I keep begging my son to stop listening to those doctors and take it out of him. He can't throw up so every time he is sick he has to suffer and have nausea. Do not do this to your child if you have any option. Only do this if your child will not survive without it.
