My husband had chemotherapy and an oesophagogastrectomy for oesophageal cancer in September 2012 and was well until last August when we were told the cancer had returned in lymph nodes. He had 16 weeks of palliative EOX chemo which ended when he became ill with pneumonia this January and bad reflux. He has had 2 more bouts of (? aspiration) pneumonia and has currently been in hospital for 4 1/2 weeks. He has been offered an anti-reflux stent to stop the stomach acid and bile refluxing (which is very bad) but is very apprehensive about such a step. He currently has an NJ feeding tube and an NG tube to aspirate the bile etc. Has anyone got any advice about such stents?
