It is 6 weeks since my Ivor Lewis oesophagectomy and although still suffering a few aches and pains from the op and very positive histology results with 15 clear lymph nodes and no cancer outside the tumour area. The only legacy from all the type of cancer I have endured is the J tube ( feeding tube) into my intestines and I have been nursing along since September although it has only actively been in use for approximately 6 weeks of this period and I cannot wait to have my stomach area back to myself without worrying about it pulling.
