I live near the Mayo Clinic where I was diagnosed and treated. In August 2007, I was diagnosed with stage 3B locally advanced poorly differentiated T3N1Mo adenocarcinoma esophageal cancer. I was treated with 28 doses of radiation and 2 separate rounds of cis-platinum/5-FU chemotherapy. In December 2007, I had surgery (esophagogastrectomy Ivor Lewis procedure). I have been NED since the surgery.

Hi Mike A family member of mine was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. I was told it spread to two lymph nodes near the esophagus. They had 5 weeks of chemo and radiation and now is getting surgery today. I was reading your experience and have a similar situation and I think it would be good to have someone to talk to. Please let me know if you can. Thanks read more.
