Hi everyone. We're new on this board, although I've read some of your entries earlier during the year. Last February my hubby was diagnosed and he's had chemo and radiation and then esophagectomy last July. He still has pain on his right rib area (about where the new attachment is.) His doctor on last visit said that there are nerves along the ribs that are cut and they create this pain and they can shoot them with steroids to stop it. Has anyone else had this pain and/or the shots? Any more info on this?
FYI- he had brain tumors show up in November, yes metastisized adenocarcinoma. They've been surgically removed and he had radiation to that area of the brain just before Christmas 2009. He's doing pretty well now, trying to build up strength and weight.
What a frightening trial it has all been.
