My brother has a feeding tube inserted in his stomach.

My brother has a feeding tube inserted in his stomach. MD recommended that he purchase a barrier cream (he called it Triad) to put on the skin around the feeding tube, because it is getting too moist and irritated. Do you know where we can purchase such a product? CVS does not have it.

had gastric bypass surgery in 2010 , due to intussusception, I lost enormous amounts weight, taking me below 100 down to 92 pounds . I had to have a revision and I am now on a feeding tube. When I am able to eat through my mouth, sometimes the food will go count counter clockwise to the old stomach and clog my feeding tube … Is this normal ?

My brother had esophageal cancer . Most of his esophagus was removed and stomach stretched up. Now he is having problems with a blockage or twist in the tube from his stomach to his intestine and is throwing up everything he eats. What can be done? The doctors are telling him that the area is being pinched from scar tissue from a hernia operation after his cancer. This hernia operation was kind of a botched operation and ended up very ill and needed a repair done after the inital hernia operation. They spoke of perhaps putting a tube from his stomach to intestine but are rethinking this as they say it will bend or break(?). Their latest solution was maybe a feeding tube and he does not want to have to resort to that. Any solutions? Thank you.
