I am 66 yrs old. I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus on April 11, 2009. I began treatment almost immediately at the G.V. (Sonny Montgomery) VA Medical Center in Jackson, MS. A J-tube for feeding was placed first then chemo/radiation therapy followed by Ivor-Lewis surgery on July 20, 2011. 9 lymph nodes were removed as part of my surgery and tested for cancer, all came back negative. I was then diagonsed as being in remission with no evidence of cancer and have been that way since.
Years since diagnosed:7
