My name is Sharon and I am 68 years old. I underwent an Esophagectomy in 2007. I lost at least 25 pounds weight-wise and had the usual problems with certain foods, eating too soon before retiring etc. I have progressively worse difficulties with the production of phlemn which not only nauseates me, but interferes with breathing and sleep. I do suffer from Asthma and COPD which complicates my situation. About a year ago now my problems with appetite and eating started to get progressively worse, I lost even more weight, and a couple of months ago was forced to have a feeding tube inserted into my abdomen to keep me from literally starving to death. My fear is that I may have a feeding tube the rest of my life so I am looking desperately for a solution to my lack of appetite, nausea, and the constant phlemn.
