My spouse has decided to go for the feeding tube -- his FVC dropped from 87 to 45 between May and October and ALS clinic folks said to make a quick decision. Our social worker gave us the name of an interventional radiologist. The doc requires an abdominal CT prior to the procedure, and we have an order for one -- but how on earth is my sweetie going to lie on his back for the scan when he normally sits up, props up with pillows in order to breathe? We'll ask when we make the appointment, but based on prior experience with "routine" medical care providers, I don't expect the scan office will have any bright ideas about how to manage this for an ALS patient with very limited mobility and reduced lung function. Has anyone else done a scan and how did it go?
