I'm due to have the op in 2 weeks. I'm lucky as I only have very early cancer of the lower Oesophagus and upper stomach. I have been offered 2 possible ops. A length of jejunal from the oesophagus to half my stomach or the full Roeux en Y, all stomach out with the 'Y' (bile & acid introduced lower down the digestive tract).
I'm ver fit and very active and want to remain so, so my question is has anybody had one of these and totally recovered physically? I sail, hillwalk and do car and house repairs, dig the garden etc.
I'm told Rouex en Y will give no reflux and interpositional less than a pull up.Comments?
