Going for pre-ops for esophagectomy

Posted by linda2007 @linda2007, Aug 12 11:34am

Getting nervous. What should I expect the first few days after surgery?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Esophageal Cancer group.

Hello @linda2007

I can surely understand your wanting to know what to expect after your esophagectomy. We have several members who have discussed their post-surgery experience in a discussion on Connect. Here is the link, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/esophagectomy-surgery/. I would like to invite some members from that group to share their experiences with you like @puprluvr @karly @nowayback @trudivo, and @angelag. These members have all posted in the esophagectomy surgery discussion.

I'm wondering if your doctor has explained the extent of the surgery you are having. Has he given you any timelines for your recovery as far as eating, etc.?

I'll look forward to hearing from you after your appointment. @linda2007. It is often a good idea to bring someone with you who can take notes and help with questions.

Do you have a list of questions to ask?

I’m praying for you Linda. I can’t imagine how scary this must be for you.

Linda, what was the pre-op like? I bet other members who are getting ready for their pre-op would like to know what it is like.
