STAGE II. Diagnosed with EC December 2013. Had 2 rounds of chemo. Had one course of radiation. Went to Barnes in St Louis March 21, 2014 for Ivor Lewis surgery. Cancer was only in esophagus, no lymph nodes involved. Stayed 10 days. Went home with a feeding tube in my left side. It was removed a month later. I went back to work November 1, 2014. ( My job is physically active) It took a year from my surgery to feel like my old self. I sleep with a large wedge. I eat whatever I want, just in smaller quantities. I drink Mountain Dew, just have to put it on ice to remove the fizz. I have to avoid bending over unless I have an empty stomach, but it's a small price to pay for being cancer free!
