I was diagnosed Sept. 1,2011 after a scope due to inability to swallow solid foods. After 28 days of radiation and chemo, I had a Esopghogectomy Dec. 19,2011 and recieved another round of chemo in March and April 2012. After gaining weight and feeling much better recieved a PET scan and EGD and biopsy and was told there was a small tumor at the resection juncture. No longer a surgical candidate, I was started on a oral agent Nexavar in October and am continuing the Nexavar. So far there has not been any thing detected in 2 CT Scans, but it is also noted that due to the size it was was not seen in earlier CT Scans.
Is there anyone else on the Nexavar, what has your experience been? My blood pressure went up and is being controlled with drugs. Have had sporadic cases of Nausea and the desire to vomit but all I can do, is gag and dry heave. Neuropathy in my feet and recently a loss of appitite.
