welcome to the oesophageal club- no doubt one you'd rather not be in (:
How did your man present, how long was the trouble, how old is he.
if you read back through mine ,the ********* began on 29 th July, officially given 8th august. I think I have experienced every emotion under the sun, sometimes all in the same day.
tThis board is good, where you can spill in 'private'
FLOT- that left me scratching my head, but found out that it is 4 chemo drugs given at each sesh. Every 4 weeks. Nuclear stuff I am told, it has a taxane and platinum.
We are now through the first lot of chemo, and now the surgery, maybe there will be more chemo. They are going for curative intent, but we are under no illusions how 'clever' cancer cells are):
Dont know other regimes, there are loads of them.
There are a few stage 4 people on here, hopefully they might find our little thread.
It seems there are a lot of us 'oesophageals' about, the guy my husband went through chemo with, is now in the next bed to him, he is only 44! Mine is 56!!
maybe it is because I am mega tuned into everything oesophageal, but it seems to be very much on the increase.
