  • My husband is 7 weeks post surgery - Ivor Lewis oesophagectomy.  He has really bad stomach bloating.  Thought it was his tube feed causing this so the tube was removed last week.  It has not made any difference.  Has anyone else had this problem and if so was there a particular cause and what was the remedy please?  Thank you.
  • Hi, 

    I am suffering from exactly the same thing. I am 12 weeks post surgery and had my JEJ tube removed last Tuesday. I also started my post-op FLOT last Wednesday and had kinda put it down to that. It certainly makes trying to get my calorie intake up very difficult as I feel completely full all the time and my sleep is poor too as I find it hard to get into a comfortables position at night. I have started taking ‘Windeze’ gel capsules to see if they help. I’ll let you know how I get on. But if anyone else has any advice, I would certainly appreciate it 

  • Thank you.  That’s really interesting.  Please do let me know how you get on.
