I had the Ivor Lewis operation to take out my Oesophagus due to stage 2 cancer Tumour about 8 weeks ago. They obviously stretched my stomach up to replace that. Recently I’ve been experiencing what they called ‘Dumping’. Can anyone give me advice on what foods cause it and how to combat the awful feeling of nausea, light headedness, cramps and diarrhoea. Also, how long do you take painkillers for. I’m on 8 Tramadol and 8 Paracetamol a day. If I miss any, the surgery incisions really hurt. The main scar on my back where they cut my chest muscles is the worst. Any advice on both would be grateful x
