Hi all. My hubby had the ultra-sound scope done today to see if the cancer has shrunk. He has already had a PET and CT scan done, but we do not have the results yet of those. The Dr. who did the scope today said that the cancer is 'fried' and thinks that my hubby is ready for surgery. He also said that the cancer doesn't necessarily 'shrink' much, but dies off. He said as for staging goes, my hubby is a stage 2 or early 3. His first diagnosis was stage 3 so I feel it has shrunk a little -- he has been able to eat and no foods are getting stuck anymore. Also, he took some biopsies and the results of that will show if it is for sure dead.
