Profile Photo My husband had chemo, radiation, and esophagectomy. Then he had AFIB and went through a hybrid maze procedure. Now, he is pretty worn out and when he eats he has stomach cramps. Not enjoying much, feeling weak and not wanting to eat...we have heard some more positive stories but has anyone else gone through this discouraging phase?

Profile Photo Hi Kathy, Sorry to hear of your husband's post treatment issues. I'm sorry but I have never heard of hybrid maze, but I'm certainly well acquainted with the stomach cramps after the surgery. They lasted a long time but diminished over time too. I learned to cope by never (or rarely) overeating and avoiding sugar. I grazed small portions all day. Now my system has become used to the new plumbing and I can eat normal meals. And sugar is unfortunately

Profile Photo not a problem any more. So it does get better over time. I wish you both luck with recovery. Roger
