I am almost two years out of esophagectomy and pull through. I have recovered rather well and after learning to eat again, I can eat almost anything within reason, jus not as much. I've had several episodes that I feel are vasovagal attacks. They begin close to or soon after I either eat a large meal or suffer from diariah. I feel as though I am going to pass out flat on the floor. I get a feeling like a hot flash and I don't want to talk to anyone, I just want them to leave me alone. I get tunnel vision and sometimes see spots. My pulse slows down and i feel swimmy headed. Is this what vasovagal episodes feels like?
