Hi all I need some info.I was diognosed with esophagus cancer last march and under went surgery April 4th. They could not remove cancer, it was to big. sugested chemo/rad right after surgery while I was still in hosp.Of course they inserted a feeding tube in my side. Day 7 after surgery my incesion became infected and had to be opened and packed.After chemo/rad I had ct and they could find no cancer or tumer, praise God.They removed my feeding tube 2 months ago and it has never closed, also I keep getting little puss pockets in incesion. Is ther anyone out ther that has had simular problems. wondering how long it will take for feeding tube to close.
