As the saying goes "doesn't time fly" I don't think I will ever forget just how weak and down I felt when I was first discharged. Then I found HealthUnlocked, What a superb forum, all the help and support you need in one place. I soon realised how I felt was the norm for people recovering from the Ivor Lewis op. There's no getting away from the fact it is a life changing operation ( also life saving thank god) especially where food is concerned, I soon learned what suited me and what to avoid.
Three years ago today I was recovering in Intensive care, tonight I have been out with the family for a lovely meal, I'm enjoying life to the full again, holidays, cycling, walking and working full time again, doing a job i really enjoy.
I realise I have a lot of very special and highly talented people to thank for what was basically saving my life, but I will always be grateful for HealthUnlocked and its members for not only sharing their own experiences, but the reassurance and support that is readily available can only be described as invaluable.
Thanks to you all
