"... your medical history and general overall health will impact your recovery from the operation and chances to develop a complication after surgery.” It goes on to say, “Anyone who undergoes a surgical procedure needs to be in the best possible shape they can be, and this is especially true of those undergoing an esophagectomy. It is a major undertaking and a drain on one’s physical reserves. Getting into the best physical condition must be the primary goal in the patient’s mind. This is no less a task than an athlete getting into shape for a competition.” “Good mental health is as important as good physical health, and if at all possible this would be a good time to get away for a week or two. You may also find it helpful to speak with someone who has undergone the surgery and is now fully recovered.”
