My son had the Ivor Lewis op 3 weeks ago and is still in hospital after a spell in ICU due to breathing problems and an infection. He's not making a lot of progress with eating and I wondered if anyone could tell me what they started eating after surgery and how long it took to be eating a reasonable amount. The dietitians want him to be able to sustain his weight solely by eating and not using the jej tube which seems optimistic to me as he couldn't do this before the op. Any ideas would be welcome.
