Invasive moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of the esophagus
Comment: "A few cells with mucin droplets displacing the nucleus are present. I favor histiocytes, however an element of signet ring carcinoma will b ruled out with pancytokeratin stain, to be reported in addendum. Key portions of this case have been reviewed by... who concurs."
(Everyone concurred with the addendum too)
I have no clue what any of this means. I will go check out these words and see what I can see.
The doc we saw today said it is inoperable. Said it was about the size of my little finger. Indicated she will probably need radiation, but not chemo. She was given Vicodin. CT scan is tomorrow, results will be given to us on Monday - all appts are booked.
Anyone who can shed light on these words and their meanings will be appreciated. We both did well as far as emotions, but we hugged and cried at the house when it was time for me to go.
What I want to know is how long we can expect to have her. She things 2 years. I'm not as optimistic. I know all people are different.
