My sister had her esophagectomy a few weeks ago. Her barium swallow looked good, but within 10 hours of being home, she wound up back in the hospital with a tear, more surgery adn all of that trouble. She now has an infection called 'C-Diff' and I am wondering if anyone has been through this experience and if they have any thoughts about how long it will take until she can turn a corner. She has the open wound in the neck with the drain from this second surgery and multiple tupbes draining what was leaking into her chest cavity.
I know she is in good hands at the hospital. I'm just looking to see if anyone has any thoughts.
