Hi my name is Debbie and I am actually writing this as the wife of someone that has in the last four weeks had a total Oesophajectomy with a 2 field lymph node removal following T3 adenocarcinoma. The surgery went really well....home after 6 days , suffered tremendous flank pain from chest drain and initially tolerated soft diet. NOW ....nightmare! Barely getting fluids down and having to have OGD ....weight dropping off so quickly! I don't know how he's holding it together because I'm almost at breaking point I feel more stress now than when he was diagnosed in April and he still has another 9 weeks of chemo to endure ! Has anyone else had these problems and come out the other side ?! Also he sneezes every single time he tries to eat !??? ...what's that all about , anyone else do that ?
