I was diagnosed with esophegual cancer in Jan and had 5 chemo treatments and 25 radiation treatments in Marchand early April. My question is it has been over 3 weeks since my last radiation treatment and it is getting more difficult to eat every day. It feels like something is stuck right where the esophegy meets the stomach or it is closing. I even am having a hard time dirnking liquids. Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Going to call the doctor tomorrow.
6/1/11 update. Thanks for all the great responses. Two weeks after I posted this things started getting better and Now I am not having any problems at all. I can eat whatever I want and even put on 5 pounds so far. It seems that i did not wait long enough after radiation for my esophagus to heal. So it does take a few weeks and longer than I thought. I go in for an Esophagectomy on Monday june 6th. Wish me luck
