My husband was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma ( 4 CM) esophageal cancer stage IV which has spread to a lymph node in his neck also. Though so far it has not spread to any other organs.
He is currently finishing his first round of chemo (surgery is not an option)
They have him on Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine. Any one else dealing with a similar situation?
it's just so scary not knowing how much time we may have. He feels ok but has lost about 15 pounds in a month.
Already seems to have a better appetite (for some things) and his throat isn't bothering him much at all.
He also says that the tumor in his neck lymth node feels smaller already.
Can that really happen after only one round of chemo? (he's on 15 days, including 1st IV day, 0ff 7 then we start round two.)
Would appreciate any input.
