Re: 50 year old cousin just diagnosed...

Treatments are done and the Dr's said he came through it great! THey said he should start to feel like himself in 7-10 days, but that the esophagitis will be at its worse then.....anyone have experience with this?

Meeting with the surgeons on Tuesday to decide when the surgery will be. Do you think that because he is doing well so far and has stayed pretty healthy that they will do it sooner than later?

What is the surgery and recovery like? How can I help prepare to help them, and the kids especially during this time?
