Hi, my dad has had surgery to have his esphogus removed back in December. At first he was doing really well, but he is having problems with the esphogus closing and not being able to eat. He is going for radiation treatment and I would like to know whether this could have an effect on that. He has a feeding tube and uses it, but not as much as he should. He has lost about 45lbs in these last 2 months.I am really worried as well as my mom is too. Sometimes I feel like the doctors don't have the right answers. If anyone has experienced this I would love some feedback. My dad is only 67 and had alot to live for. Thanks so much.
