I was diagnosed when I was 41, had port surgery on my 42nd birthday. I had 35 sessions of radiation and 4 cycles of cisplatin and 5fu. Did not have surgery as tumor was attached at one end and wound up the interior of my esophagus starting at the junction up 2 1/2 inches.
Years since diagnosed:19

Hi Teri, my dad is diagnosed with Stage 3 Oesophagus cancer recently. As he had triple bypass 8 years back back, doctors suggested not to go for operation but to try radiotherapy. Currently he is in the 3r week of radiotherapy along with 3 sessions ( weekly once) chemo (cisplatin 5fu). Pending 2 weeks of radiation and 3 chemos which completes his treatment for now. It would be very helpful if you could share how you are doing and how the treatment helped you. Thank you so much. KP read more.
