About our publication
               The Oxfordshire Oesophageal and Stomach Organisation (OOSO) is committed
               to the provision of high-quality information for people with a diagnosis of
               oesophageal and/or stomach cancer, as well as their family and friends.

               This publication was written by patients and their carers gathering together our
               many years of knowledge from our experiences. All information is checked by
               members of the clinical team. We do not profess to be medically trained.

               We make every effort to ensure that the information we provide is accurate, but it
               should not be relied upon to reflect the current state of medical research, which is
               constantly changing. If you are concerned about your health, you should consult
               your doctor.

               We are grateful to the following people from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS
               Foundation Trust Churchill Hospital, for reviewing and contributing to it:

                   —  Nick Maynard, Consultant Upper GI Surgeon
                   —  Anne Phillips, Upper GI Senior Specialist Nurse
                   —  Liz Ward, Upper GI Specialist Dietitian
                   —  Hamira Ghafoor, Enhanced Recovery Programme Facilitator
                   —  Nathan Robbins, Surgical Specialist Physiotherapist

               A thought …
               Cancer is a word that strikes fear into most of us, but medicines and treatments
               have improved dramatically over the years. We can all help ourselves in our
               treatment and recovery by maintaining a positive mental attitude and keeping
               ourselves as fit as possible.
