My father is going thru his chemo as we speak for stage 4 Esophageal cancer. Recently he had a PET scan and all lymph nodes and the tumor site were clear for cancer. We all were so excited! His doctor told us he was responding well to the treatments, however the micro cells still are invading his body. He also explained he can only have 6 rounds of the chemo he is on because of kidney problems and heart muscle problems. He is on round 4 , what happens after round 6? Does this cancer take over? I am confused can anyone help?
