Diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer in late june of 2013. Completed Chemo (Cisplatin and 5FU) and Radiation treatments with very little side effects. Pet Scan showed clear with complete response to treatment. Had a Ivor Lewis Esophagectomy in November and have recovered from that fairly well with minimum side effects compared to most. The good Lord has blessed me many times over in this journey so far. During my surgery and the normal Lymph Node removal they found active live cancer in 7 of the 9 nodes removed. The repeat Pet Scan showed no metastisis or tumors. My doctor says there is not alot of info or studies out there about my situation ????? The plan is to start more chemo next week. Any and all experience, information, opinions and research that this wonderful board and the people on it could provide would be helpful.
