- Postoperative delayed gastric emptying [ Time Frame: Postoperative recovery period in days (on an average <20 days) ]During the postoperative phase the patient will be followed daily with assessment of symptoms suggestive of delayed gastric emptying.
- Quality of life [ Time Frame: during three first postoperative months ]Quality of life measured by use of scientifically validated instruments.
- Postoperative hospital stay [ Time Frame: In hospital stay in days (on an average <20 days) ]Time in days from the operation to discharge from hospital.
- Total Gastric emptying as measured by the paracetamol test [ Time Frame: three months postoperatively ]Paracetamol orally ingested together with chocolate biscuits whereafter peripheral venous blood concentrations of paracetamol are determined. Blood samples taken at baseline and every 15 minutes after paracetamol ingestion during the first hour and then every 30 minutes for an hour.
