Sharon.........My husband was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in Nov. 2004. His was too advanced for surgery, it had metasticized to the liver. He was given chemo and radiation. The cancer is his esophagus was gone but they were never able to get rid of all the tumors on his liver. He received RFA( radio frequency ablation) to his liver twice. The first ablation shrunk most of the tumors, but they came back. The second ablation, several months later, was too much for his liver and it shut down. He passed away Nov. 2006. I will pray for you and your family. It's an ugly disease.
