When you have got the whole stomach removed, the esophagus is connected to the small intestine. 

Normally the stomach is a reservoir for the food and the food is grinded into small pieces and blended with gastric juice. When the food is sufficient grinded it is let out in the duodenum in small amounts.

After this surgery the food leave the esophagus and goes directly into the small intestine.
