Has anyone's spouse or loved one had the esophagectomy and never made it home from the hospital after this surgery? My husband was diagnosed right before last Christmas, had radiation, chemo treatments and then the surgery on 6/10/09. He remained in the hospital nine weeks, had good days and bads days but we never gave up the hope of his coming home (neither did the doctor). Unfortunately on 8/10/09. he passed away. I am filled with so many unanswered questions, etc and each day I struggle making it thought the day. Today I did call and made an appointment for grief counseling. I would love to hear from any of you - thanks!
