    Hello Joey

    Well Son let me tell you we can walk thru this diagnoses with you, most of us have been there and are doing what you are experiencing.

    We are survivors because we have shared our hurts and joys together, this has helped us along the way.

    Tell us a little about your symptoms or hurts and your plans.

    I was 65 when diagnosed now healthy 80 you can do the same, there is life after EC. I did 25 radiations sessions and 5FU/CARBOPLATIN chemo.

    Have you been staged?

    Here are some of the steps I took 15 years ago.

    - Get a second opinion.
    - Found surgeon/hospital familiar with MIE.
    - Found oncologist familiar with EC.
    - Take good notes/record Drs. visits.
    - Get written report of each visit.
    - Own your diagnosis, know and ask questions.
    - Get dup copies of all scans.

    These are some of the steps I took along the way I am sure you will have plenty more, don't be bashful these Drs. are working for you.

    Dr Google can tell you all you want to know about Drs. and Hospitals. You must be your own advocate.

    Waiting to hear from you, your symptoms and solutions can help someone also.

    I was 65 when diagnosed now healthy 80 you can do the same, there is life after EC.

    Behappy come back and share your story with the gang of survivors.

    Most of us have probably walked where you are walking and would be more than glad to hold your hand along the way. We also have fun along the way(laugh).

    Life is great you know I am going on 15 years of trouble free survival (T3N1M0). I did chemo(carboplatin/5fu) 2 - 96 hour infusions, 25 - radiation treatments and then a laparoscopic esophagectomy (05-17-2013) at UPMC. In hospital 5 days, downtown shopping on 8 th day in big city of Pittsburgh.

    Don't know your current health but I was 65 when diagnosed and now 80 and still a healthy and active survivor willing to help you.

    A be happy survivor, Billy
