I am scheduled for surgery on December 28th. I was diagnosed in August 2009 with stage III esophageal cancer with no other involvement according all of the scans and an endoscopy. The doctors will be doing an Ivor Lewis and he said if there is cancer on the liver he will close me up-scary. I am hoping I come through the surgery ok and that I can return to a fairly normal life. I will have the procedure done at St. Francis Hospital in Wichita, KS. I had chemo and radiation and the tumor shrank from 7 inches to 1 1/2 inches. However, the doctors may have to use my intestines-this really scares me. Please say a prayer for me. I would appreciate any info concerning recovery.
