Patient story

Gary’s story

“I was diagnosed with a rare, benign parapharyngeal schwannoma, a neural tumor close to my salivary glands. It was only by chance that the doctors discovered the tumor! I was told that for six weeks after the surgery I would need a nasogastric tube feeding. But my body didn’t cope with the tube and I could no longer swallow food or drinks. I felt very weak. My weight dropped from 16 stone to 11.5. Eventually had a permeant low-profile gastronomy tube fitted.

Now my weight has increased and I’m getting stronger. I’m back at work and keeping active - I even ran the London marathon last year, wearing my pump the whole way around. I am living proof that it is possible to have a relatively normal life whilst tube feeding.”
