Has anyone had this and was able to be operated on? My father just found out he has cancer. They did a gastroscope, thinking he had GERD or reflux and they found a large tumor in the esophagus and some smaller in his stomach and the CAT scan showed one lymph node enlarged. We are waiting to go the oncologist on Monday. The stomach doctor wouldn't tell my mother what stage he was. I was talking to the Mayo Clinic and she said that it if we took him there he would have to go to the mets area because it's in both, meaning it metastisized and spread.
I really like what I am hearing about Dr. Luketich and he's the same distance as the Mayo clinic from us. Again, it's all up to my father, but I am trying to find the best information to present him with. He is going to be 76 years old this month, what a birthday present. But I really am heartened at what I've been reading on so many people doing so well for so long.
