How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?
I am five years out, still have back pain from the radiation. They only thing that helps that is riding my horse. Still have some other pain, but it is nothing compared to the way it was right after the surgery, I call this my new normal. None of it is bad enough to stop me from doing what I want to.
In other words it will get better every day.
Two things that helped me, sea bands, from walgreens and lots of water. Pills did not help .
I am a 5 year survior, had chemo, radiation and esophgectomy in 2007. This new normal is OK as I am still doing everything I did before E/C, just not as much. But than I am 72 years old.
