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.
