Hi all, sorry I have not be on here more, but was on a vacation away from Internet and phone. Nice to do but a little scary when I don’t have contact.
I developed yesterday a sharp pain in my esophagus when swallowing. It is mostly in the lower part by what I guess is where it connects to my stomach. It is also painful in the upper and middle part, but less so. Of course I jumped right to my neck cancer came back or more so spread to my esophagus. Every time something goes wrong I panic with a self diagnosis of cancer spread.
My last treatment was 12/17/2012 and so far, last check up 30 days ago, last CAT scan three months ago, no sign of cancer, at least in neck.
Has anyone else had this problem so far out of treatment? I had the usual radiation and chemo. I won’t be close to my doctors for about 4 to 5 more days. Hate to call them as it may just be acid reflux or just another delayed side effect of the treatment.
Any thoughts will help.
