My late ex-husband had esophogeal cancer, so no oral feeding was possible. He would cry with pain trying to absorb a dribble of water anywhere near his throat. He would have died months before he did if he'd said no to the feeding tube. This was the ultimate anti-MAID guy; he was making plans for more chemo, when he weighed 90 lbs on a 6' frame and his doctors were talking palliative sedation.
