I had an NG tube once for a stomach bleed. I was awake when they put it in....NOT FUN! Hopefully you will have it put in during surgery. If not, they recommend that you have a glass of water with a straw and suck that down while the tube is going in. Once it is in it should not be a problem. I did not find it a problem, however I did get a runny nose and a sore throat. Sometimes they will let you have cough drops, so ask if you can have these. It really helps the throat. I see my surgeon on the 13th to schedule a subtotal colectomy. So we will be recovering together hopefully!
Hope this helps!
Mine was in for three days. It was just okay. Yes compare notes! My home email is email@example.com. Email me anytime!
