Flot chemo and oesophagus cancer

Hi does anyone have any experience of flot chemo and oesophagus cancer? My husband has had chemo and the op. Just wondering how difficult post op chemo will be for him.

How do you get your partner to eat and take meds when they don't want to?

Hello Caz68, 

I have actually just welcomed another member to our forum @Mariey ‍ whose husband also has oesophagus cancer so I think it would be great for you both to be in touch at the moment and support one another during this difficult time. You can read @Mariey ‍ 's thread here and you will also see in my response to her a few resources and other threads I have signposted her to which I hope will also be very useful to you. 

Our nurses are also available on this number 0808 800 4040 - the number is free to ring and their line is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. Don't hesitate to give them a ring and discuss this with them. 

I hope you wil hear from others who are or have been in a similar situation and that they will share with you tips based on their individual experiences to help you get your partner to eat and take meds. Do mention this too to his medical team who I am sure will have some valuable advice for you on this. 

I hope everything goes well with your husband's treatment and that he recovers fully from the operation.

Best wishes,
