    GOOD ADVICE, MAINE MED SAID THERE WAS NO HOPE! Then went to BRIGHAM & women"s IN Boston Mass.They gave us hope and he is 2 years out of surgery and so far clear of cancer. Get a second opinion

      Microwaves,Yes it has been my thought also.Many people stand right in front of the micro watching and waiting for the food to be done. Power lines another ?? In my town the deer that roam the power lines have bben found to have tumors so the hunters say.

              My husband was told to sit up for 3 hrs after eating.He does not have a problem with aspiration unless he goes to bed or lays down too soon after eating. Even reclining way back in the recliner can be a problem until the food goes down.Something he is aware of.Talk to yor dr about it. Their are so many idiosyncrasies after this surgery

                Absolutely should go back for a scan. Why go through the worry of this terrible disease comming back. Rule it out Husband does not go to bed until 3 HOURS ATLEAST after he eats per dr. advice. It has been good for him no problems unless he breaks this rule. The coughing has stopped he used a cough medicin called "pearls"that worked very well. Also had to have a throat stretch 3 times that helped with swallowing is...

                    I would guess that they are frustrated and perhaps angry at the diagnosis also. They too realize the same as you that he may not be there for the grand children.If you cannot talk openly and calmly with them about your fears and feelings then there is counseling through hospice or through the Hospital social workers. Don't try to handle it all by your self reach out to the above mentioned and I think what you are all...

                      Does your Mom have a feeding tube (J tube)directly into the intestine? It does take awhile and when you are going through it all it is difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. My husband had the Ivor Lewis sept 11 2012. Only started to eat normally about the end of February.2013. He would go to the hospital to get hydrated via I V three times a week insurance covered this tx. This kept him strong as he wa...
