I am a 48 yr old male, had surgery for the removal of a tumor that was located in the lower part of the esophagus on 9-29-01. The tumor was approx. 1.7 cm. I was staged at 2A, meaning it had not spread to my lymph nodes, but it had entered the wall of the esophagus. The type of cancer was squamous cell carcinoma. Chemo and radiation were not recommended at this time. My questions are: All that I am having done at this time is a blood test and a cat scan every 6 mos. What kind of follow up treatment is everyone else having? How often? Doing anything special about your diet? (I am able to eat solid foods). Are there any other suggestions about anything else that I need to be doing? My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
