My dad has throat cancer and went through radiation and chemo last summer. In March of this year he had to have his larnyx removed because the cancer was back. Last week we learned the cancer has returned again and they are planning surgery next week to take a portion of his bowel and rebuild an esophagus after taking out another section where the cancer is located. Has anyone heard of this or know about the procedure and its success/failure rates?
