    Remission

    Celebration

    Haven't been on for awhile? I am now cancer free for almost a year. Had speech therapy before being able to ear again after Ivor Lewis surgery. First after being diagnoased I still could not eat. Had stent put in and it dropped down becoming life threatening coughing up blood. Removed and had Ivor Lewis. Still was unable to eat or sip water until after speech therapy. Now able to eat almost normal. Just had my 3rd CT Scan since and still no cancer.
