I was curious if it takes longer for food to digest now that I had a total esphogetomy. I'm 12 weeks out from THE surgery. does refashioning the stomach into a gastric tube slow down the digestion process?
For example this morning I had my "normal" coughing fit to clear air and mucus, eventually I vomited up the tuna and noodles that I had eaten around 6pm last night.. I have noticed this has happened a few times since I transitioned from a feeding tube to normal foods in the last 2 weeks.
I'm still struggling with gaining my appetite back and eating more than a half cup of food at one time.
