My husband is having a heck of a time recovering from trtment of chemo/rad/lap surgery. Diagnosed stage 4 in July. His surgery was 11-28-08 and he is still hospitalized. He's got a fistula aka leak which has formed a pocket above his lung and they have a drainage tube which is draining green gunk. They just did an xray where they injected a contrast dye and then took pictures. We're waiting for results but they're talking about another endoscopy to put a stent down his throat to by pass this fistual(aka leak)to allow him to drink something. yes, he's been unable to put anything down his throat since surgery.............we're going crazy. Anyone with a similar situation????
