Hi Becky, I also had a esophagectomy with gastric pullup. I was stage 1 and I had the feeding tube put in during the surgery 9/11/09 and came home from the hospital 9/18 and when I went back to see the surgeon on 9/30 he removed the feeding tube. I did not have any problems with weight loss..I did throw up once in a while but that was due to me eating too much at one sitting...I found it very hard to change my eating habits. I also having a cough when eating and it has been 3 years now. My weight has been steady. It does get better over time.
