My name is Terry Puccio. I had the surgery on September 3 2014, to remove a tumor from my esophagus. They took 2/3 of my esophagus and 1/3 of my stomach. I\'m currently having trouble swallowing so I go tomorrow to have the new connection stretched. I was wondering how long it was for you to start feeling normal and eating somewhat normal. I feel as though I am going crazy because I\'m not seeing improvement. read more.
Hi Irza, Thank you for the heartwarming story and may God bless you. My question is, what was your CEA level when you were diagnosed? Thank you Dan read more.
Hi Irza, so happy to hear you are cancer free! My mom, age 64, was diagnosed on Friday with EC, they are not sure if it is stage 2 or 3 yet as they are waiting for results of her pet scan, which she is scheduled for on this Saturday. She is starting radiation and chemo early next week. I am scared and clueless as I have no idea what to expect. I am reaching out because my mom cannot eat hardly anything and it breaks my heart. She basically chokes on anything - she has been eating cheesecake, ice cream and eggs. And shakes. I was wondering if you had any ideas suggestions on foods or shakes ? Not sure if you will but thought I would ask. Thank you for sharing your success story and I hope my mom can share one day too! Also, any feedback for what I can do for her post radiation/chemo treatments? Expectations ? Advice on this scary road we are about to embark on? Thanks again! read more.
