I'm new here. My dear sis was diagnosed about a month ago. Stage IIb adenocarcinoma. Very aggressive plan being put in place... 28 radiation treatments in conjunction with chemo (not sure of drug choices) which will be 6 weeks in duration followed by the esophagectomy. My sis is only 55 and healthy. From what you all have heard/read/experienced, do you think this will rid her of this? And a follow up... does this cancer come back often? If so, any details would be great.
I don't want sugar coating, I'm really hoping very honest dialog. I love her with my whole heart and want to be the best support I can for her.
