We are a support group for people diagnosed with or recovering from oesophageal and gastric cancers. We also campaign for a better awareness for the signs and symptoms of the disease

GUTSY is run by patients to provide support and information primarily for patients undergoing surgical treatment, radiotherapy or chemotherapy for these cancers. Our aim is to share our experiences with anyone visiting this site or attending our meetings

We realise people will  visit this site for a variety of reasons. Some will just want to be reassured that they are not alone in combating their disease and who just want basic advice. Others will need to understand everything there is to know about their condition and its treatment.

Inevitably this site will tread a middle path between the two.

These symptoms may be nothing to worry about but it may be worth visiting your GP
