It has been a month since dads surgery today.....he is recovering well ...but we started another round of chemo today ....they will be given once every three weeks for 4 times....(4in all) the oncologist said as they have found one node positive along the greater curvature of stomache in post surgery biopsy they are doin as precautionary measure ....dad's esophagous was entirely taken out along with 3.5cm of his stomache .... His post surgery cat scan has come out clean....Dad has also started eating semi solid food...
I have been following all your post but I couldn't reply cause I was to occupied with my dad .....he had pains all over after the surgery and one of his secretions tube was just removed a few days back....his body still aches ...he has been very brave fighting., and fight is still on ...chemo was very painful for him last time before operation...let's hope the 3 weeks gap he will get in between chemo will increase his tolerance level.
