‘Dumping’ is a distressing sensation, akin to a diabetic’s hypo- or hyper-glycaemic episode, that people who have had an oesophagectomy can experience after eating. James Gossage, a specialist in oesophageal surgery, explains the alterations involved to the anatomy of the stomach and the gut, the consequences of eating certain foods, and the steps that can be taken to minimise the occurrence of this unpleasant syndrome. Further information can be found in the OPA booklet ‘Guide to Life after Oesophageal/Gastric Surgery’.
