Hi after worrying myself silly regard recent blood test my husband had. Hi levels of enzymes showed up in his liver. He went for his ultrasound scan this morning and it appears he has gallstones, the pain and symptoms he has had for the last 2 months certainly match those of gallstones but we have been putting down to dumping syndrome which my husband has had from the very beginning after his Ivor Lewis. Are gallstones quite common in people who have gone thru this type of operation. I can't believe how ill he has been and we kept saying surely this amount of pain cannot be normal 4 months on. I do feel relieved it wasn't anything more sinister but really needs sorting soon as its all getting so much for my poor hubby. He had clots and 2 heart attacks caused by pre op chemo. He had anastigmatic leak collapsed lungs and sepsis after his op. He's had 5 dilatations and can barely. Eat and has no energy to walk. Now this pain my heart is breaking for him. I will encourage him to call your helpline for some support as he really needs it. Many thanks Helen.
