Re: Esophogeal and Stomach cancer newly diagnosed

Update. My husband has had 22 chemo treatments. The onocology nurse calls him her poster patient because he is still responding well. He is participating in a Mayo study which is promising. Esophogeal/stomach tumor has shrunk down to a "nodule" in esophogeal/stomach junction and spot on liver has shrunk down to a little less than 3 mm from original size of around 180 mm. He does not like the oxaliplatin due to cold sensitivity and neuropathy side effects. Taimse.
