Your children had been on tube feeding for a long time. Should you stop the tube feeding after transplantation?
Some children, mostly those under the age of 5 years, have been on tube feedings before their transplants. Those children may have not eaten solid foods at all. Or they may have only nibbled food now and then in the months or years before their transplants. The good news is that most children who have been on tube feedings are able to stop the tube feedings and go on to eat a normal diet after transplantation but this transition may be slow.
