My child is getting a gastrostomy feeding tube

Our video shows the explanation from the GI consultant, the nurse specialist and dietician about children needing a gastrostomy feeding tube. The mum and paediatric feeding team talk about the surgery, the different types of feeding tubes and bolus gravity feeding and continuous pump feeding. When mum and Rocco return 3 months later they tell us what a difference the gastrostomy has made to their lives.
