Welcome to Oesophagectomy Life
It's been 5 years since I was diagnosed with and treated for cancer of the oesophagus with chemotherapy and surgery.
I felt the passing this significant milestone warranted a change to this site, which will remain live but with fewer updates.
My artbook, Art of Oesophagectomy and other ebooks will remain on this page, freely available to download.
I also intend to update my artbook to include new drawings to mark being 5 years post-op. My plan is send a free hard copy to all upper GI nurses in the UK. That is the plan anyway.
So below are (or will be) three documents:-
- Art of Oesophagectomy - a visual diary of surgery and recovery from oesophageal cancer.
- Confessions of a FLOT patient - an account of FLOT side effects and how to prepare for this regime of chemotherapy
- Oesophagectomy Life Blog Book (coming soon) - all the blog posts about recovery from 2018-2021
