Oesophageal Cancer - Recovery

Hi - I would love to hear from any recovered / recovering oesophageal cancer people on how they dealt with all the post-op problems - nausea, loss of appetitie, loss of weight, fatigue & pain (Endone at present). I am 5 weeks post-op (chemo / radiotherapy ran concurrently finished Christmas last year) - all clear but struggling with loss of strength - unable to work since October last year. I was lucky as only Stage II. I understand it takes many many months to recover & return to normal functioning, work and exercise. The days are very long as there is not much I can do but sleep - I guess this is common to all types of cancer. Your suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
