My dad got GREAT & not so great news. But the GREAT outweighs the "not so great". The ad news is He failed his swallow/leak test, but they will repeat it. Also, he is having a problem with increased glucose and is having insulin (he has never been diabetic before EC).
The GREAT NEWS is that the pathology result showed NO LIVE CANCER CELLS IN THE MARGINS or in the 23 Lymph nodes that they took!! The surgeon said he was a stage 3 and will always be concidered that even though they don't see any cancer at this time. This is a great comfort bc of a ?questionable lymph node seen on a US near the liver at earlier testing.
All of you---no matter what stage THERE IS H O P E !!!
