I had an esophagectomy w/ a gastric pull-up in June of 2007. Things were fine untill Apr of 2008. I started getting abdominal pains occasionally after I eat. It is different foods I have already had and at different times. I also am having the hardest time putting on weight even after trying high calorie protein drinks.

Dear medic2615,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "esophageal cancer," "esophagectomy," "gastric pull-up," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field. The major categories of content on CSN are blogs, discussion boards, “About Me” pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a specific resource on the Resource Library, you can limit your search to resources only by clicking on the "resource" and "advanced search" button at the bottom of the "advanced search" box. Remember that you must be logged on if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal pages, use the chat room, etc.

Cordially,
Your CSN Staff

I have the exact same problem. I know it has been awhile since you have posted this but have you found anything out that has helped you?
