Greetings and Happy New Year,
I have been reading this forum for past few hours and really helpful it is.
I have HH GERD and have acid reflux for as long as I can remember in childhood. I am 39 male. T1 adinocarcinoma was detected in biopsy while investigating for reflux in Oct 2017. Had preoperative assessment on 4th Jan18 and have IL surgery on 6th Feb in Aberdeen.
I have had downtime of 8 months (5months in bed) many years back due to an accident and associated surgeries. So been through that and have experience of hospital major surgery and recovery. However I was bachelor and active at that time and now with responsibility for wife and two primary age children while laziness crept to keep myself fit.
I watched IL surgery video and was but upset about the permanent changes it does. But hope for the best.
My main concern is the reflux continuation after surgery, as is evident from other people's experiences. The surgeon has agreed to my disposition that that the cancer is outcome of the long term reflux.
While I read GERD and lesser of HH patients done Linx installation, are there are cases where Linx was installed in patients undergone Oesophagectomy to counter reflux?
Any information will be really useful.
