In Reply to: esophageal stricture from radiation posted by Leon Ball on July 23, 2000 at 19:51:32:

: the radiation for lung cancer has resulted in an esophagel stricture and I cannot eat. I'd would like
: to hear from someone who has been through this......or is in the same situation. I have lost many
: pounds and getting too weak to even pursue a correcting procedure.
my mom had intense radiation for lung cancer, and quickly was unable to swallow. they insered a feeding tube through her nose and she didn't have to worry about it. her caretaker fed her through the tube at home. she ended up only losing 15 pounfd.when her throat was the worse they went in and stretched the opening and cleared out all the scaring and yeast that had built up from the radiation. the doctor said she had had the worse espohosus he had ever seen.
