I am seaching for answers and many are scarey! My husband is a dialysis patient and began having trouble swallowing. The endoscopy found cancer...about 7 cm tumor...seems small. Next test was a CT scan which we were told no spread of cancer...but no one could give us a stage. Later that night the doctors office called again and said they wanted my hubby to have and endoscopy with ultrasound...someone would call us with an appointment time. I guess they want to take a closer look at the liver and pancreas. Then...I guess we will get a stage.
Well...four days later...we still haven't heard. We have tried to connect...but no luck so far. After this next test we are supposed to have a consult with a surgeon and there may be a need for chemo. I guess I am concerned about the wait...and possible spread if we don't get moving on this. Also, has anyone had the surgery and been a dialysis patient. What if surgery is not an option???? Thanks...Susie
