Surgical Resection

I am seeking information about the after effects of gastric resection surgery and the healing. In July of 2001 I had the surgery removing the upper fourth of my stomach and two thirds of my esophagus to remove an adenocarcinoma tumor at the gastric-esophageal junction. This was nine months ago. In the last couple of months I have developed a good deal of difficulty with cramps and pain after eating. The last tests done indicate that I am currently cancer free. Has anyone else experienced this? Will this improve or resolve itself? I am trying to find out the cause of the cramps and pain and what can be done to alleviate this.

How are you doing with recovery from the surgery? Have you had any other problems from the surgery?
My Husband will finish radiation on Monday, May 13th 2002 for Esophageal Cancer, EG Junction. T3, N1. I do hope you will share your experience with us. Thank you.
