Not posted on here for a while, do though still read other members posts. It's been over six years since my Ivor Lewis and have been doing well. I do though now have some health issues that I wish to bring up as others may have similar symptoms.
After my op recovery was slow but each month brought an improvement and most of the aches, pains and discomfort eased off. What did linger was a cough whenever I ate and some pain/discomfort under my ribs and the occasional bout of vomiting. As others also had these symptoms I was not overly concerned and accepted this as normal.
However, over the last year the cough got worse and the pain under my ribs increased along with the bouts of vomiting bile. When a friend also had pain in the same area as me and the vomiting after eating some foods, was diagnosed with Gaul stones, I asked my doctor to check me over. An ultrascan showed this was also my problem and I'm now waiting for them to be removed. My cough meanwhile was getting worse and after another visit to the doctors was sent for an X-ray. Two days later my doctor phoned to tell me that the X-ray showed some nodules in my lungs and that I will get a call in the next couple of days from the hospital to have a CT Scan.
I'm now waiting for that call and although concerned what the CT will show I try to remain positive.
