My husband had an esophagectomy/gastric pull-up 7 weeks ago. At least once daily, he starts coughing and subsequently vomits..lots of mucous..and sometimes part of his last "meal". He's on a j-tube feeding, but is supposed to be eating 5-6 small meals a day. It's so difficult getting food into him when he has this problem...and so frustrating as he wants so badly to have the j-tube removed. Anyone else have these problems?
