I'm 15 weeks post gastrectomy and I've started to notice that some food isn't going down as well as it did and it feels a little...uncomfortable (I wouldn't go as far to call it painful). My Gi nurse told me this might happen and not to panic as it will probably mean I need a stretch. Phoned for an app yesterday and it's looking like 4 weeks before I can be seen. Obviously this brings back memories of dysphagia and the diagnosis and try as I might there is a niggling feeling that thia might be more than scar tissue.
I guess I have a couple of questions... Is it possible for something to grow from microscopic cells to obstructing my oesophagus in 15 weeks, and more importantly, has anyone had a stretch before and how does it feel?
Thanks in advance as ever
