Nutritional Information

Since esophageal cancer surgery patients may have issues with nutrition we have set this section of our web site to be devoted to various receipts, food types and other aspects of nutrition that hopefully can help the esophageal cancer surgery patient plan meals and decide on food types that best suit his or her needs when it comes to eating properly. In most cases the receipts and food suggestions are good for all people who are interested in eating a good cancer fighting balanced diet.

It is important that you select a balanced meal. If you had a portion of your stomach removed in the surgery (Ivor Lewis Procedure) it will be necessary for you to eat more then your customary three meals a day so you get enough calories to maintain your weight. Exercise is another important element of your recovery process and your focus should be a proper exercise program and maintenance of your weight as your initial goals.
