    Hi, After my many postings on this site over the past year, I lost my hero last Friday Jan 20th to this evil disease. Exactly a year after being diagnosed, my dad died in his sleep at home peacefully with me & my mum at his side. We are heartbroken. I am currently raising money for OCHRE (The Oesopgaheal Cancer Charity) in the UK, I am doing a 10K trek with friends this May to raise awareness. Please conside...

        What are Nitro pills? My dad can't even have chemo due to his fluid increase, we are literally stuck :(

          Sorry to add - his blood test this week shows the liver is not making enough protein - but the other 2 liver tests were fine. The Dr thinks the heart is the main cause of the fluid build up.

            Hi everyone,   My dad has oesophageal cancer with lymph & liver mets. He is experiencing fluid in his feet & gets very breathless when he moves. We have been told today he can not have any more chemo as he is not fit enough (he last had chemo back in July). Is there anyone else on here with similar type problem on any other type of treatment? He really doesn't just want to sit & do nothing but se...

              What other chemo besides Cisplatin were you on? My dad has had no luck with chemo, he had Cisplatin & Xeloda but the cancer just grew & spread to the liver. He also has had radiotherapy with no luck. Clutching at straws now :( if only we could find a drug this thing wasn't resistent to.

                Hi, Not a great deal of experience but my dad has been diagnosed exactly the same. He has been battling cancer of the esophagus (adenocarcinoma) at stomach junction since Jan this year, last month we were told he now has new tumours in the liver after both chemo and radiotherapy have failed to do much good. My dad is at the moment trying a therapy at a Centre for Integrated Medicine as conventional medicine has not...

                  Hi, Sorry to ask a personal question - but what sort of sizes are your tumours on here? My dad has Oesophageal Cancer which has now spread to his liver - I just wanted to ask what is considered a 'large' tumour? Thanks, Pam

                    Hi, I sympathise I am in similar situations with my dad and am totally heartbroken. It is good that there was a response from chemo, it did nothing for my dad. I can say that we regret having radiotherapy, it robbed my dad of quality of life, and in actual fact has done nothing to the tumour at all. It has practically laughed off everything we have thrown at it. Radiotherapy on the Oesoph is harsh, I know it has h...
