I had my surgery on April 18th removing 1/3 of my stomach and 2/3 of my esophagus. I have had 5 dialations since. Starting at 1 week apart I am now up to 2 weeks. My GI feels it will close down less the futher away from the surgery I get. But he is prepared to do the procedure as many times as it takes. I am lucky enough to live close to the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale and they are getting to know me quite well.
I was lucky enough not to not need chemo or radiation. Lost 60lbs but have leveled it off at 190lbs. Working on regaining strenght and eating well.
I look forward to participating in this discussion group. Feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com.
A swift recovery to everyone.
