survived!!!! there is hope.
Hope they don't mind me posting a survivor story, but you will see my posts from fall of 2009 when I was getting radiation and chemo for preop esophagectomy. Well it has been a year, a long one, but I am eating and feeling like my old self. In case someone out there is wondering how it goes, there are many people surviving this terrible type of cancer. The treatment and surgery were no walk in the park. I had to have post op treatment, I had the Ivor Lewis extensive surgery but after seven months started getting my old self back. Also, there are a lot of good people posting on the Cancer Survivors Network board who can help with many problems EC patients face. This is a good board too. Just wanted to update anyone trying to find out about survivors. We have a saying among us, one step at a time, then the next step. take care,
