In brief: After surgery

After an esophagectomy, or removal of the esophagus for cancer, your ability to eat large meals will be diminished.
You will need to eat 6 small meals a day intead of 3 large meals. You might lose your appetitie, so it is important to do scheduled eating to maintain your weight. Also you will need to avoid certain foods. http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/surgery/specialties/cardio/esophagus.html.
