    Esophageal cancer now in brain

    My husband (54 years old) 26 years married was diagnosed last march with esophageal cancer in stage three. We went through the chemo and radiation then went the resection surgery. All went well and last Cat scan he was clear, no cancer. One year later he began not to speak clearly and could not remember simple words. I thought it was a stroke. They found 5 masses is his brian. We just went through 10 session of radiatio and they said two were not noted and 3 had shrunk to almost nothing. But, I am worried he does not seem himself and do not know if this is a effect of the radiation or if there is something else going on. His ject MRI is 6/24.

    Re: Esophageal cancer now in brain

    I am so sorry for your husband's diagnosis. My husband was diagnosed in Nov. 2004 with stage 4 esophageal cancer with mets to the liver. He passed away in Nov. 2006. He was 59 (married 36 years). I am unfamiliar with mets to the brain, but whole brain radiation could cause cognitive and memory problems. Did you speak with his doctor about this? I wish you well, and please come back here to talk anytime. I know what you're going through and you will both be in my prayers
