Would anyone not recommend a PEG for a respiratory onset PALS? My brother was first diagnosed in August 2019, and seems to be progressing reasonably slowly from what j can gather. No one, neither his doctor nor his partner, has encouraged him to get a tube, even though weight loss and eating are a problem, and have been for quite a while. I quote from here frequently the benefits of a PEG, but I wondered if the respiratory onset, rather than any other sort might be the issue.
