    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    horrid nausea for 2 months, only ate 2 tablespoons of cream of rice each day, lost 30 pounds, complete invalid, lost some of my mind, don't enjoy food . My dentist told me that he had to pull 4 teeth because of chemo damage. Oncologist denies this.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    I'm not sure of side effects. I blame chemo for all the negative side effects.

    Painless Experience: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA

    now after nearly a year of NED (petscan, a second endoscopy,) my GI doc told me that the latest biopsy shows presence of cancer cells again

    Decision Point

    From past conversations with this Oncologist I think he will say I need esophageal/stomach surgery - something I will again resist
