We're on the tube 24 hours a day and have never been through Summer before. Our regular dr. doesn't know about G-tubes and our in-home nurse isn't sure about what to do either. . . .
During bad heat when we go out to the car our pump has been malfunctioning. We're obviously not keeping DD in the heat any longer than necessary, but sometimes do have to walk a few feet in the heat for whatever reason. . . like going to the doctor or pharmacy.
Did your pump come with a special set up for this sitauation... Insulated bag or something else? If not, are you supposed to have an icepack near the pump or food bag? Will it mess up the pump if I put one next to it and the machine gets cold? I don't really want to refrigerate the bags before I set them up, because cold food causes gas and we have plenty of that already.
Thanks in advance!
