Thank God my EC was caught early enough that my surgeon feels no chemo or radiation is needed. I had 1/3rd of my esophagus removed along with 1/3rd of my stomach. All my nods were checked and all came back negative. after I was discharged the first night I developed a hole where they were attached and spent 2 more weeks in the hospital. I'm home now and am healing well. I have so many things you all have described dry cough,nausea (all the time) sick from tube feedings, runny nose. Lost 40lbs.
