TPN 18 years post op
I posted about a month ago about starting tube feed due to bowel resectioning that needs repair and causing eating issues. I did not tolerate tube feed so I'm back on liquid diet, which I started March 5th. My surgeon won't do repair until protein levels are up. He scheduled surgery for Monday pending blood work, levels are still too low so he postponed surgery for at least 2 more weeks. My dietitian has recommended TPN. Has anyone had any experience with this? I work in hospital so I know what's involved just haven't experienced it myself. Any help would be appreciated.

No experience with it, personally, but just wanted to wish you luck with the procedure. I hope you continue to heal and get well.
