A family member has been diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer with mets to the spine and hip. He received chemo and radiation. The pet scan has shown that the spine lesion is gone. The hip lesion has shrunk considerably. The esophageal cancer has decreased greatly. The doctor is suggesting surgery. Has anyone with Stage 4 had a esophagectomy/Ivor Lewis? And if you did would you do it again?
