Now out of hospital for 17days, having had my 'Ivor Lewis' op on 2nd July, progress seems quite slow but a recent visit to see the surgeons seems to suggest I'm not doing too bad.
Had my feeding tube removed and whilst life has drastically changed for me I would tell anyone who has the chance for this op to go for it.
I had it at the Queen Alexandra hospital, Portsmouth and the surgeon Mr Knight and specialist Upper G I nurses Lorraine and Anne, together with dietitian Lauren have been fantastic.
So far not a lot of problems, 'dumping' has improved and I am now eating a little more at each meal. At 73 yrs I hope for more time with my family and to regain some of my previous life style ( looking forward to a b-b-q ! )
