Has anyone had surgery at Sloan Kettering in NY to remove esophagus. Please help us decide if the quality of life is worth it. They are rushing us into it and my husband does not want to have it done. At this time I agree with him. He is stage 4 with lymph nodes and lung affected. PET scan after radiation & chemo in 2 weeks. 1st PET scan after chemo only showed the lung spot disappeared and lymph nodes went from 4cm to 3cm and espophagus went from 16 to 4. Hoping he's clean now. If he is why go through this?
