Our pet scan was not good, neither was the biopsy and bone scan. All confirmed mets throughout the bones and muscles in my husband's body. He has the one small tumor in the esophagus that had mets to the lymphs and chest, now he has these nodules in bones and muscles. They are beginning radiation and chemo this week. We are so worried. Drs say this is strange, not seen EC show up like this in bones/muscles. But biopsies reveal it is cancer.
Is there anyone out there that has these same conditions with favorable outcome? What kind of chemo / how often / we don't know the answers to this yet, will find out more tomorrow at dr. We are hoping these aggressive treatments will stop/kill the cancer spreading to his bones. He is already experiencing pain in his lower extremities. Please someone out there tell me there is hope!
We went into this thinking we might get to have surgery and get rid of the tumor and esophagus, now we are faced with no surgery and lots of treatments.
Thank you for everyone that has been praying for us.
