    That’s really great! But Chris is stage IV and no one will operate on him. They say it’s too dangerous.

      Hi Karen, It’s very late right now. For at least me and Chris. ?? But I will surely get ahold of you to talk about other options. We are so frustrated and the doctors seem to think this is all normal. Doesn’t seem normal to us! Thank you for responding. Marcia

        Hi All, My husband is supposed to have 27 radiation treatments to his esophagus.  They have only suggested this recently. He has had 11 treatments so far. But, the radiation has caused him to have such severe nausea that he has had to skip at least 5 treatments. Has anyone had this response? I mean every hour he has been sick.  Also, he is in his 3rd year of this disease and has been on Keytruda for the l...

          Hi, I was told by our radiologist that you should not have cryotherapy while you are having radiation treatments and maybe chemo, because essentially the cryotherapy is adding oxogyn to your system which not only feeds your good blood cells but also the bad cancer cells.  He feels that after treatment it could help a lot.  But he absolutely does not think it should be done while your on radiation.  Yo...

            Hi John, Holy cow! I have a had a pill stuck sideways in my throat and that is awful.  I can't imagine it happening and feeling like you can't breathe. That sounds so scary! You have given me so much good information.  I am really happy to have met you. :) Chris's tumor is in his lower esophagus and growing tube between his stomach and esophagus. I couldn't tell you how large it is., but until about two w...

              Hi John, I guess i didn't read the whole message!  You've had 14 dilations!?! Did they tell you why so many?  Does your esophagus just keep closing back up?   I am going to ask our radiologist and see what he says.  I will pass that along to you. Thank you, Marcia

                  Hi Susan, Thank you so much for replying I am so happy to hear your dilations worked.  Sucked it happened because of your radiation.  Our main goal is to get Chris to start eating again. He has not eaten a solid meal in almost 2 years. The feeding tube hurts as bad or more than the treatment he is getting. I am so hopeful that the radiation will shrink his tumor so he can eat. And will definitely ask him a...

                    Hi John, I am so sorry to hear you have had this terrible cancer and twice! Oh my gosh. Lord, I hope he wont have to keep getting dialations. Are you able to eat normal now?  He's had this feeding tube for about 2 years and that is almost worse than the medicines. We have been going to so many doctors and they do CT scans about every 3-6 months.  And we only get an endoscopy if we ask.  We h...

                      Hi, My husband has had stage IV Esophageal Cancer for 3 years now. He’s been treated with a chemo & Keytruda trial, Folfox alone, and now for the past two years Keytruda alone. The Keytruda has been great for all the cancer in his liver but has not touch his lymph nodes or the original tumor which has now grown into his stomach. Now, skin has completely grown over his esophagus. Has anyone ever experienced thi...
