My dad was diagnosed stage II ES back in May 2011. At MD Anderson immediately for 29 days chemo/radiation. Scan showed no more but we opted to have major surgery and remove that section. During surgery they didn't see anything! Scan 1= perfect! By May 2012 he had difficulty swallowing and jt's back. Now we're on 4 rounds of chemo. with a port for 3 days on, 11 off. He JUST TESTED POSITIVE FOR HER2. Now what? Any tips? Is my dad done? Is this like heart disease or any other and you just treat and fight? Please help me understand and give words of wisdom for me to help my mom. They are only 56. This is too early to be the end!
