I feel like i know everyone on this board, we have been reading along since my husbands dx of distal adenocarcinoma in Nov. 2007. He is fighting and is a survior. We have had so many complications that just when you think you are getting to a high, you get more bad news. My husband had resection surgery were they removed 5 inches of his lower esphog. and replaced with 5 inches of his colon. he went from 220 lbs down to 170 lbs. He goes Wed. the 26th for the PET scan to stage his newly dx. squamous cell lung cancer. Has any one survived EC and then had a different type lung cancer NSCLC? Right now the lung specialist is saying due to the types that it probably is two different primary cancers, not the normal metastis. I would really like to talk to someone who has had a simular experience. BTW hubby is 62.
