I was diagnosed with EC on 30-May-2013. I had chemo, radiation and then a 14 hour esophagectomy and stomach pull up on 19-Sep-2013. I was on a feeding tube for 4 months and on oxygen even longer. Last week I had a CT scan and it showed no cancer, although they did find a nodule on my right lung. I will have another CT scan in 3 months. I'm hoping for the best. Stay strong, everyone!
