Problem description: Hello, Dr. Xiao, my mother discovered early esophageal cancer in 2019. In August 2019, you underwent an esophagectomy to reconstruct the digestive tract. From the postoperative period to the present, the throat and stomach become tight and hard when eating. Sometimes it is better, sometimes it is more serious and very uncomfortable. Is this a sequelae? Is there any way or medicine to relieve it, or do I need to go for further examination? In addition, do stomach medicines (Daxi or Nexium, domperidone) need to be taken all the time? What is the dose? Looking forward to your answers!
