I am from Romania and after much searching I found this site and that I read a few days.
With your permission I will tell my story. (unfortunately real, no fiction)
My husband, Adrian, was diagnosed with EC in November 2011.
The investigation began when the sensations have increased the lump in the throat and he could not swallow food, had to drink some water.
At endoscopy biopsies were taken, then I let it run, followed by an appointment CT, and the results is : ADK eso-gastric junction.
Doctor immediately sent to the surgeon and was operated on January 6, 2012. He spent a month in hospital, greatly weakened obviously, and the CT at 3 months tests out well.
It feels good, but can not eat anything, only liquid food or slightly solid.
A feature I would like to submit to, I have found the site a similar topic:
Nutrition. I read more about it but we found it necessary to adopt a vegetarian diet. In so doing eliminate meat products, milk and eggs.
This is because these products contain Vitamin B12 is contraindicated in patients with cancer either.
No one told us this, but one which caught our attention: when I went to doctor and gastroenterologist were prescribed only multivitamins without B12.
From that day I began to inform us and we found a lot of information that this vitamin is contraindicated.
But am wondering: if it is not allowed B12, however, this vitamin deficiency is harmful to you. We continue to have a vegetarian diet with more vegetables and fruit, protein seeds, nuts, and a variety of diets and good recipes.
Can eat anything I cook, blender and mix with all the vegetables, if you want to eat them raw.
He has a little problem with coughing, sometimes, rarely, has a cough, especially after eating or drinking liquids.
My husband was 98 kg and now has 70 kg. He does not look good skin was left, but no matter how eating little and often, he no longer fat.
But I think it's too early to think about.
I saw the site as WilliamWMarshall survived so many years this cruel disease, but I saw that others with less training did not survive more than 2-3 years.
I'm curious what kind of surgery was? My husband is operated above the breastbone to the bottom, below the navel, and another incision from the breastbone to armpit. Very large incisions.
Doctors said they had to check all the abdomen, then cut the top of the stomach (preventive) and tied it with the rest of the esophagus.
I want to know if anyone has done the same with diet and, if effective, as it says. Our opinion is clear: the disease does not disappear, but must keep guard up all the time and not let us down. And if this is a weapon, then nothing is too hard.
I'll go in mid-June to a new control, to see how we stand.
I keep you posted.
Good health with the Lord
