I've been reading for several days and have finally gotten throught the techy difficulties (Have no clue what I was doing wrong!)
We have our surgeon chosen at the University of Chicago and now after seeing their oncologist we are attempting to plan the chemo/radiation therapy.
We have been asked to do this trial : CALGB 80803 Randomized Phase II Trial of PET Scan-Directed Combined Modality Therapy in Esophogeal Cancer
I'm thinking one is a targeted therapy on one is not?
Anyhow, we will probably be staring chemo next week and Ivor Lewis surgery some weeks after chemo is complete and they feel he is ready.
I'd love to hear the things they don't tell you sort of feedback and look forward to sharing and contributing....
They reallly should create a new emotion altogether and call it cancer becuase there is no way to describe all them at once!
