My husband was recently diagnosed with EC on December 4th. He had hiccups when eating. Had a Barium swallow, endoscopy, and CT scan done at our local hospital. Referred to Cleveland Clinic to see a Thoracic surgeon. The surgeon was very negative. My husband had a kidney transplant 6 years ago and has developed diabetes since then. Surgeon did not think he would heal from the surgery. Said my husband had a 15% chance of getting out of the hospital after surgery. Not very good odds! He has appt. on the 28th to see an oncologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Hopefully we will find out exactly where and what stage the cancer is in. I would love to have any information that you have that could be helpful to us. Will keep all of you in my prayers as we journey throuhg this awful thing called cancer.
