Update 17th June 2015
I am, happy to announce that we are now entering the 5th and final stage of my journey.
Surgery has been planned for Tuesday 30th June 2015 and will be conducted by Specialist Thoracic & Esophageal Surgeon Professor Mark De Groot.
This will take place at the UCT Private Academic hospital in Cape Town
The procedure is considered pretty invasive and entails what is referred to as an esophageal re-section
I am informed that I will be in-hospital for a period of approx. 10 days.
Thereafter approximately 4 weeks before I am back on a solid diet & receiving the green light to jump on commercial aircraft.
