I'm afraid that my 15 year old son is going to give up on EN too soon. He is newly diagnosed with Crohn's, has been in the hospital for 2 weeks on TPN. Was doing well on clear liquids so they dc'd TPN and started EN by mouth. He needs 7 cartons of Boost Plus/day and 20 ounces of water for 8 weeks. Day 1 he had 5 cartons and some water; day 2 drank too much at once and got nauseous, so ended up with maybe 4 cartons. Doctors convinced him to try NG tube. Initial insertion last night was horrendous experience and not successful with two tries. He begged us to not let them try the NG tube again, but a couple of hours later is back to saying he doesn't think he can drink the Boost. We will meet w/ doctor in the morning and I'm afraid he will recommend going to meds. I feel strongly about EN and don't want to give up. Any advice is appreciated!
