Hi, I wonder if anyone can offer advise, my husband is about to have a oesophagectomy ( they are removing 2/3rds Oesophagus and and 1/3 stomach) next week.. and I'm very worried all will be well, they say it's an 8 hour operation and he will be in hospital 6 -10 days… after that when he is out I am wondering how well he will feel? will he be able to get out and about, eat? or will it take a long time to do those things, is sleeping problematic ? I have asked a few questions but never get any real answers as yet, maybe when he is discharged they will tell us more… I am just so worried for him , he is 63 and always been quite fit.
