Hi. My husband had an EGD done yesterday because he was having problems with swallowing & some bowel issues. They found a mass in his lower esophagus and upper stomach- the dr. said he is certain it is cancer & took biopsies. He then sent us to the hospital for a CT scan (barium & dye). We meet with our primary physician tomorrow to go over the results of the tests. I am trying to remain positive, but I'm freaking out. My husband is 40 years old & is still recovering from back surgery that he had in March. I don't know where to begin looking for resources- I ran across this site today and have just begun reading through posts. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as questions to ask tomorrow? Thanks so much for your help.
