My partner is now one and a half years post Ivor Lewis surgery and has managed to come off all his pain medication, he was having gabapentin and oromorph but has been without it for about 4 months ish now. He has developed terrible stomach pains roughly above his scar line on his abdomen. He said the pain is there all the time, sometimes dull ache and sometimes can be sharp, it is worse once he has eaten. We have seen his surgeon today and he has done a contrast CT so we shall find out the results next week, fingers crossed it's nothing major we have to battle again. Just wondered if anyone else suffers with these kinds of ongoing pains? We're hoping it's due to him coming off the pain meds but feel happy the surgeon is looking into it for us.
Thanks in advance, laura x
