Hi guys, I had the Ivor thingy operation almost six weeks ago now. I was very lucky and it appears they got all the cancer out when they removed my Oesophagus and 42 lymp nodes. I am re learning my eating habits , trying to eat small portions every two hours. Although difficult, I’m coping with that. I accidentally pulled my J feeding line out. My surgeon says he reather I eat more than out it back in. Again, a pain but doable. I’ve lost 1.5 stone. The BIGGEST problem I’ve got is this damn cough. If I take a big breath or even talk to much (whichbi ofyen do), I cough so much I bring up the thickest white/translucent Pleamb. I’m trying all sorts potions to help. I’m currently in Codeine Linctus. Anyone got any advise. I wonder how long this cough will last?
Also one last thing. I’m taking 2x Tranadol and 2 x Paracetamol 4 times a day for pain relief. How long should I take them for?
Thank you x
