    OMG, are you saying that your cancer has returned? I will be cancer free for 5 years the end of March and this message from you certainly got my attention and wondering what happened if it has infact returned.

    I will be cancer free for 5 years the end of March...my drs diagnosed my cancer from severe acid reflux for many, many years. I did drink on a regular basis but didn't consider myself an alcholic...have only had one drink since I was diagnosed. Unfortunately, the smoking, is a totally different story. I quit for a long time and definitely could not smoke going through treatments and surgery. However, being a smoker for almost 40 years, and living in an environment of family members all with some type of addiction, along with my mother having alzhiemers, I have started back again, strictly in the closet, less than 10 per day...not proud of it, but have. Anyone relate and maybe could give me some advice?

      May I ask what was your symptoms for you to go to doctor and what stage? My husband did have acid reflux, but not on a regular basis; which is why it floored us. I pray that you stay cancer free ; wishing you and your family blessings.

      I dont smoke and neither does my husband; he doesnt even drink....I have heard from people who have quit that its one of the hardest things to do. If you can beat cancer, you can quit smoking. I do have faith in god and pray many times a day ; maybe that could help.

      Actually, the only symptons I had was a sore throat..believe it or not. I had it for about 3-4months, I had been on prilosec for many, many years, so the dr tried several different other acid reflux meds which none of them worked, he then ordered a CT scan, which came back with some abnormalities and then I had an endoscopy which they found a tumor, stage 4, in my esophagus. Yep, I keep telling myself the same thing about the smoking issue and like you have a tremendous amount of faith in God and keep praying for his assistant in trying to quit and I truly appreciate your prayers!!!!!
