I would be interested in knowing how long people had off work following oesophagectomy. I've just read advice from a physio stating that normally people were fit to return to work 8-12 weeks post-op. This surprised me as I returned to work doing 2 days per week a year after my surgery and even then found it very tiring. I did have complications following my surgery so maybe I've been slower to recover than others. Now 15 months post-op although I am generally feeling well my energy levels are not back to what they were. Would love to hear your comments to see if I'm alone in thinking this advice is rather optimistic.
