Does anyone have any experience with feeding tubes? I think they're called J-tubes, where they're surgically put in the child.

My DD has been FTT for awhile (b/c of a genetic disorder), and at her last appointment, her doctor mentioned the possibility of a feeding tube be put it for awhile. This idea scares me pretty badly, and it's something I want to use as a last resort (trying to get my hands on a supplimental nursing system, I think that might help), but I want to get as much info on it as I can.

Thanks in advance!
I predict a riot.
