Well, got my EGD and did not get the stent or tube. The dr was going to put a j tube in my small intestine since he said that my achalasia prevented the stent placement. But when he tried he could not do the j tube because my small intestine was not in easy reach. So went home like I came. He said everything looked alright and that I had some radiation effects in my esophagus but he did not say to me or Ron that the tumor had shrunk and we were so confused about all the j tube talk we forgot to ask, now that is worrying me big time. He did biopsies but he did not say of what, so I am calling next week for those results but also I am asking for a copy of the EGD so I can see what he saw. It was a very confusing day and he said he could not do the feeding tube in the stomach either. Thanks for those prayers but can't imagine how I am going to get enough nutrition in the next 5 wks, those special feedings were mentioned also, TNP??? not sure don't know much about them. take care and stay strong everyone!!
