I was diagnosed Sept 2010, went thru chemo and 35 hits of radiation with esophogetomy on Dec 21, 2010. Recovery was pretty uneventful and all my checkups have been good until three weeks ago when my gastro doc/EGD saw something and the biopsy results came back abnormal. Now I'm facing an endoscopic ultrasound and all the damn fear, worry and unknowns associated with it.
My oncologist has told numerous times that blood test are the best way to monitor this monster and mine have always come back negative...Still I worry that something was missed or did not show up.

Let us all pray for each other that this hideous and disastrous disease does not win the battle but only serves to make each one of us and those we love that much stronger ;>}
In any event I'll know for sure after Wednsday.
