And you will find people here who can help you find great treatments, who will bouy you up when things are really tough, and who will pray for you when you need it. I know you will get a few answers, I just wanted to say welcome to this place.
Welcome.....if you click on my picture to the left of this post, you can read details of our story. My husband was dx March 2009. Stage iv....chemo was his only option. If he decided not to have treatment, they only gave him 2 - 3 months. He is still here and doing well after his chemo treatment and subsequent treatments and meds. My advice is to fight with everything you have....and pray. After the 10 months that we have had, we truly believe in the power of prayer. Let us know what other kind of advice or info you need.
Hi, and welcome to this group. My husband was diagnosed in July ’09 with stage 4. He went thru 6 rounds of chemo. and 5 weeks of radiation. We enjoyed a short break and have resumed chemo again. There is a sharp learning curve with this disease, as you learn more, you will have more questions. I have found this group to be a huge help and very responsive, so ask away. As for advise, stay strong and don't believe the stats!!!
I just want to say welcome, and remember we all share this disease together, so don't hesitate to ask quesiton, I am MOE, and you might need some BIG GIRL UNDERWEAR/BIG BOY UNDERWEAR, to get your thoughts together, we all use them on this board, not once but many times. My husband was diagnosed with stage 2 and had the esophojectomy back in july, he is doing good now, but i wasn't in april 09 when he was diagnosed. I don't wont to go into detail unless you want me too, but we all have been where you are at one time or another and some are still there not able to have surgery or treatment, but we all take one day at a time, with this ugly disease thats all you can do, we vent, cry, laugh, try to help, and hopefully give you advice we have already either done or going to have done.
Please know we are here you can ask any questions and somebody will have an answer for you.
Please tell us more and where do you live and etc.
