Complexities in Oesophagectomy, Gastrectomy and Colectomies
Oesophagectomy poses risks that include infection, bleeding, cough, leakage from surgical connection of the esophagus and stomach, hoarseness, acid or bile reflux, respiratory complications, such as pneumonia and swallowing difficulties (dysphagia). Gastrectomy carries a risk of complications, such as infection, bleeding and leaking from the area that's been stitched together. A gastrectomy may also lead to problems caused by a reduction in your ability to absorb vitamins, such as anaemia or osteoporosis. Colectomy can cause blood clots in the legs or lungs, internal bleeding, infection at the skin incision site or inside the belly and hernia.
