My husband had his esophagus removed on Feb. 23 by Dr. Luketich at the University of Pittsburgh. I must thank Bill and Loretta Marshall for directing me to this wonderful doctor! The surgery went very well. My husband was in the hospital for 5 days and then he recuperated at Shadyside Family House in Pittsburgh for 10 days. The Family House is a wonderful place. We flew home to Florida yesterday. My husband feels pretty good. He has lost a lot of weight, but he is eating and I hope he'll regain the weight in time. At the moment, his only complaint is a nagging, dry cough which he has had since the surgery. I'm not sure what to think about it.
