My husband Graham had his Ivor Lewis Operation 3 months ago. He has been in constant pain ever since and can barely do a thing. The thing that's worrying me is the pain on his right side has started to become even worse and he is having is pain relief increased again. None of the medical team appear to be that concerned and keep saying everyone's recovery is different, but should his pain really be getting worse. I would feel more reassured if he had a scan or x-ray as I'm worrying something more sinister is going on. he still hasn't started his post op chemo as he's been far to ill. Apparently he had 17 lymph cancerous nodes removed. Again nobody has really explained much to us , we feel kind of on our own. is it normal to not have any follow up scans after having your operation. I think we would both feel a lot better if we were reassured nothing more sinister is going on.
