18 months after my Merendino Interposition where a length of jejunum is inserted between my remaining oesophagus and stomach to stop reflux, I've just been informed after I had a CT scan that I am completely cancer free. Yippee!
I had the scan as I have a small lump next to my umbilicus which might be a hernia but they are not sure but its definitely not of any concern. Has to come out some time. Apparently it is quite common to have a hernia after any abdominal surgery, presumably as you use different muscles.
I still suffer occasionally from painful severe wind attacks after eating something my body doesn't like but a small price to pay. I have no pattern in what causes these attacks other than they are usually later in the day after my main meal.
