I would like to know how the surgery is going to go for my husband. He already has high b lood pressure, diabetes (currently on insulin), has a stent in leg for circulation, has partial knee replacment, had prostate cancer a couple years ago and now has eosphageal cancer. He has been through radiation and chemo and hasn't eaten since. He is on 24 hr. TPN at home. I know this surgery is going to be very hard on him but with his medical history I am very concerned how he will do in surgery. Any insight??
