I was diagnosed with lung cancer...non-small cell adenocarcinoma...in January 2012. It took from Thanksgiving until then for my doctors to come up with the diagnosis. My symptom was blockage of the esophagus. The GI people didn't react very quickly. I have a g-tube which was initialy used for feeding. One of my tumors was pressing against the esophagus. I had 38 radiation sessions and 7 chemo sessions. My last radiation treatment was on April 12th.This shrunk the tumor blocking the esophagus so I am able to eat by mouth once again. I still have the feeding tube though I haven't used it in quite awhile. It's back already.
