Hello Andy

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I'm sure it's been a difficult few months for you.

I wanted to let you know that we have quite a number of members here who have been through treatment for oesophageal cancer. I'd recommend having a look at this thread and posting a message there. As you'll see there are a lot of messages on that thread and so hopefully you will be able to connect with some of those members over the weekend and they will share their experiences with you. 

If you wanted to chat with one of our nurses they're available Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm on 0808 800 4040. 

I hope that all goes smoothly for you on Monday. Do let us know how you're doing when you feel able to. 

Best wishes, 
Cancer Chat moderator
