Hello, my name is Bernie. I was diagnosed with a tumour in my esophagus in June 2017. The tumour was removed by surgery on 3rd October and I was discharged from hospital on 24th October. I would like to communicate with anyone who has been diagnosed and had the operation. It would be helpful to learn of the journey to recovery. I am 65 years of age. I was active and in part time employment up to the date of diagnosis and I am now coming to terms with 'retirement'
