I had my Ivor Lewis op on 8th March, unfortunately there were complications and I developed a leak after some time in ICU and 4 weeks in hospital I'm home now recovering. I am unable to eat anything and only allowed to take small sips of water till the leak repairs itself as I wasn't well enough to go back into surgery.
I'm feeling better every day the only major problem is I am throwing up 3 or 4 times a day of which is greenish bile. Has any one had experience of this at all? Not sure if it's medication causing it as I'm on MST and top ups of oramorph. Or the fact that I'm not eating at all so my stomach is empty. I have a swallow test in 12 days and hopefully the leak will be fully fixed and I can eat but in the meantime the throwing up is getting to me. Would appreciate any advice from anyone who has any similar experience.
