Mon, Apr 22 1:16pm · Beating Esophageal Cancer Odds to Become an Advocate

My brother just had Esophagectomy Surgery in Mach, He had is feeding tube removed on 4/1 and was doing really good eating small meals every 2 hours. Now, in the last week he is gagging and throwing up some after he eats. I think now its just in his head that he will throw up. Anyone have any suggestion or advise on this? Thanks
