“What Can I expect From My New Feeding Tube?”
The second episode of the Own Your Feeding Tube video podcast series will show you how I have had to make a few lifestyle changes after I had my feeding tube placed.
I agree, it can seem like a lot of work and even a little scary at first, but I can honestly tell you that living a full, healthy life with both CF and feeding tube can be done. Here, you will see what I have done to overcome any challenges that a feeding tube may present.

“Normalcy with a Feeding Tube”
In the third episode of the Own Your Feeding Tube video podcast series, you will see how I have been able to maintain my physically active lifestyle. Prior to getting my feeding tube placed, I had a fear that my life would change drastically. It did, but for the better. My health drastically improved, plus I saw my energy and activity level sky rocket. I was in the gym and on the ice only 6 weeks after surgery. While the feeding tube does require a little extra work outside of the realm of normal cystic fibrosis responsibilities, I am more than willing to give a little hard work for such incredible gains.
