In brief: PEG Tube
A peg tube is used to deliver nutrition directly into the stomach bypassing the usual entry of nutrients through the mouth.
You will need to know about some care issues related to the tube and some signs of complications. You should be supported by a registered dietician and the physician that placed the tube.
