Last night we had fish and chips. No doubt asking for trouble! During the night Alan had reflux and discomfort around the area where his oesophagus would be if it was still there. He’s ok this morning but lay worrying during the night that the cancer was coming back. He feels he ‘couldn’t go through all that again’. He’s 19 months post op and everything seems to be going well. He’s fed up feeling tired but got shingles in December and the rash and pain seemed to concentrate on the area of his back where they’d cut to carry out his oesophagus removal. He’s been to the G.P. about 4 times to ask if his tiredness is normal and he is told that the effects of shingles can go on for many months. For him it’s now about 10 weeks. Does anyone have any advice to give on similar experiences? Alison (worrying wife).
