Hi. I am new to this site. My husband, age 39 was diagnosed with stage III esophageal cancer on August 4, 2009. We have two daughters, ages 3 and 7. Naturally, we were in shock at first and crying all the time. Now, it has settled in a little and we feel much hope and faith that he will make it though it will be a bumpy road.
He will have 4 rounds of chemo prior to his esophagectomy surgery and 4 rounds after. He also has a choice of either radiation or cryotherapy along with his chemo. The surgeon is highly recommending cryotherapy instead of radiation. I was wondering if anyone here has had this done and if they could please share their experience.
I am learning a lot from all of you by reading your experiences. Even though we have never met, we all share a special bond.
