Patient : My dad of 57 suffered a stroke last month, and currently bed-ridden mostly at home after being discharged from hospital last week. I think he may have frontal lobe stroke judging by his current after-stroke symptoms, he couldn't control himself and keeps pulling his nasogastric feeding tube over and over again. Is there anyway I can stop him from pulling the tube out again, as well as any suggestions for proper therapy treatment for this?
