Esophagectomy, Emptying from gastric tube
Validate paracetamol clearance technique to scintigraphy for measuring emptying rate from the gastric tube.
Other: Measuring emptying rate from the gastric tube
- Validate paracetamol clearance technique to scintigraphy for measuring emptying rate from the gastric tube [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]During one diagnostic measurement perform, simultaneously, scintigraphy and paracetamol clearance technique to measure emptying rate from the gastric tube. After the test the patient answer both a QOL questionnaire and symptom questionnaire.
- Evaluate if patient with symptoms of slow emptying rate from the gastric tube also have slow emptying rate measured with scintigraphy. [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]Patients will answer the questionaire EORTC QLQ OG25 for validation of upper gastrointestinal symptoms and the questionnaire EORTC QLQ C30 for validation of quality of life. Emptying rate from the gastric tube is measured with scintigraphy.
