I've been reading a lot of the older posts and it seems that I should request surgery to have the tumor removed from my esophagus. This is considered pallative care. I was wondering if anyone with stage 4 had the tumor removed and what the ramifications were. I think it would be better if I was able to eat a full meal. Just curious, I want to explore all my options. When 1st diagnosed I was told by the surgeon at Sloan that he wouldn't see me again. Disturbing as it was, I accepted the prognosis. Any info would help.
