I haven't been posting much recently due to workload and dealing with digestion issues. But all that aside, today is 7 years since my oesophagectomy - so something to celebrate which I intend to do later with my life long supporter and wife Jenny!
I'm still finding out and my most recent learning is around the role of the FODMAP diet in tackling the unpredictable bouts of bloating/diarrhea. If you want to know more look at med.monash.edu/cecs/gastro/... Also worth reading fasttractdigestion.com/ which adds some other interesting insights to problems that many of us on this board are familiar with.
To all that are currently facing the demon. I wish you well and can assure you that there is life after surgery. I still enjoy life every day. Yes we need to adapt and come to terms with the "new you". At the same time we become more expert in living this way and find that we can help other patients/carers which is very rewarding too.
