Profile Photo Pamela, I'm sorry to hear about your husband. I see you are waiting for a response from Roger. I have alerted Roger about your message. I can get you to a group of EC people online (click on discussion forums on survivor's site), a hotline number in US http://www.fightec.org/services/ , or another caregiver one on one. there is also a UK hotline. Just let me know. Kind Regards, Jay, moderator Husband Stage IV EC

Profile Photo Hi Pamela. Ever since I had the surgery, I have slept on my back on an inclined bed. I too suffered from regurgitation after the surgery but this sleeping position helped enormously. As for food, the chemo made everything taste different and in some cases awful. But I knew I had to keep my strength up and I persevered with eating. Gradually everything came back to normal.
