    Hi Sherrir

    I agree whole heartily with Bart, we must lean on Him daily. He will give us strength for the day .

    Bart is an 18 year survivor and I am a 16 year survivor still trying to catch him.

    Tell us where you are in your journey with EC. We hope we can help you along the way. What is your stage, chemo/radiation and the symptoms you have had along the way .

    We like/try to offer HOPE to our partners in going down the EC trail.

    Open up you will find a lot of Whatnexters experience here that will be willing to help you.

    Hi Derrick
    Most of us here on WN have been down the road with EC. Give us a little more feedback on your diagnoses, like stage, type chemo and radiation. What kind of symptoms are you having now that we might be able to help you with. We are all individuals and we have all hit bumps along the way maybe we could help smooth some of your bumps along the way.

    I was diagnosed Nov 2002, T3N1M0, did chemo(5FU/CARBOPLATIN), RADIATION and a minimally invasive Esophagectomy at UPMC. I never regretted the path that the Lord lead me thru, He gave wisdom to my Drs. and my wife Loretta. I am 81 years old and a 16 year survivor, the Lord is still in control and taking care of me, and he will do the same for you. Let us know what we can do for you Derrick.

    Your friend Billy22

    Hi Billy
    I just saw your updates Have you had a reoccurance? I have not been posting much on WhatNext because I have had to limit screen time due to two concussions in 5 months.
    Sending prayers your way

    Decision Point (Other): My big decision was to do chemo/radiation and then to have the operation (MIE from my second opinion at UPMC)
