This is my first post , on behalf of my husband who has just had the Ivor - Lewis op 7 weeks ago . Hes been doing well in recovery until the past week or so , hes now struggling to eat solids ( had soup for lunch but fish pate sandwich caused a blockage & hes sitting here trying to bring it up or move it down!) This has been getting steadily worse over the past week. I suppose the scar tissue could be the problem & I`ve heard that stretching the oesophagus can work . His morale is suffering & we would appreciate any opinions / thoughts etc.
