Medical / gastrostomy use and care
Danish term or phrase: maves kkens forv g
A part Swedish, part Danish document on gastrostomy placement. Excuse the spelling - this is how ALL words with 'difficult' symbols appear throughout the document. It's the 'forv g' bit that I can't seem to find. Anyone know what the stomach's (probably) forvaeg is? Indeed, is there a spelling error perhaps? The sentence reads:
..at maves kkens forv g holdes fast op mod bugv ggen...', i.e. the stomach's ??? is held up against the abdominal wall..
I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Thanks, Helen

anterior wall
Explanation:
Not sure about the 'kkens" bit, but I would say 'forvaeg' is 'anterior wall'

Now I see you must already know \'mavesæk\' - just stomach!
