Reading your blogs is now something I look forward to. Five months from my oesophagectomy and doing OK (I think). Still getting twinges around the ribs and slipping down the pillows causes problems but my biggest worry is weight.
Not the usual worry of not gaining any but the opposite, putting weight on, despite trying to hold it steady by restricting quantity I eat and taking exercise .
Prior to the tumour I had lost four stone (I thought by dieting but maybe it wasn't) but I like the new weight and would not wish to return to the old . After my 'op' I weighed thirteen and a half stone now I've gone up to fourteen and rising. My typical diet is one Weetabix for breakfast , a soup or open sandwich for lunch and a low meat (only eat chicken since the 'op')with veg for dinner. I have fruit juices and fruit and try ( when the weather permits) to walk a mile a day.
I also take cottage cheese and flax oil before every meal.
Should I worry about the gain ? Your comments will be appreciated.
Good luck to all.
