I am a 48 yr old male that had surgery on 9-29-01 for squamous cell carcinoma. It had entered the wall but had not spread to the lymph nodes therefore chemo and radiation were not recommended at that time. As of today I am doing well and would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. You may e-mail me at bowman4@hotmail.com or through this.

loneone,

I am a three-year survivor of stage IV esophageal cancer--an adinocarcenoma, partially differentiated. I had a two-inch tumor in my esophagus and one-inch tumors in each lobe of my liver. I have had an esophagectomy with a gastric pull-up and have had one liver tumor surgically removed and one radio ablated. I underwent four months of chemotherapy and several surgeries to correct problems that occurred as a result of treatment.

On 5 April I was three years from the end of treatment. I am in the 5%.

That's it in a nutshell. If I can be of assistance to you contact me at hicksfw@prodigy.net.

My name is Christine. Good luck!
