I was diagnosed on 1/11/2012 while working in Honolulu with stage 2, t3 adenocarcinoma at the distal junction. I immediately flew home to Texas and had chemoradiation therapy (7 weeks out) and just had another EUS. My GI stated that he found no evidence of the tumor but did see inflammation and redness that he believed to be from the treatments and recommended the syrgery. I am 55 years old and have never had any kind of surgery. My surgeon here in Dallas specializes in Thoracic oncology and worked with Dr. Luketich at University of Pittsburgh and also at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston
Ken- Stage 2, T3 adenocarcinoma.
