Six weeks after a partial gastectomy - 5 cm of oesophagus, 1/3 stomach removed and 10cm of jejunum (bowel) in its place I am starting to get bad stomach pains after eating. I find a lot of wind in my stomach 5 minutes after eating. Four times I have not felt well with sweating and twice with serious pain which is enormous amounts of wind in my stomach which is blown up that takes me an hour to clear "from both ends".
Is this dumping? I am not opening my bowels though which i think is the normal dumping effect. I am not getting reflux.
And it seems to be getting worse. Its better in the morning and the wind builds up during the day. Just where is all this gas coming from? I burp 6 or 8 times one after the other and yet I have no sphincter valve at the bottom of the oesophagus and would expect there to be no pressure in my remaining stomach.
