    Hello Dave, Sorry to hear about the issues with eating. Unfortunately, I have no suggestions or experience to share, in fact, I have a question. I would appreciate any input from tiu on this. My dad is NED since Nov. 2016, but there's mild esophagus stricture diagnosed in April 2017 when he had pain swallowing. Now, since March 2018, occasionally he faces difficulty swallowing food. The chest x-ray in March was g...

        Hey Reddanyo! My dad is diagnosed with stage 3 and he finished with 35 radiations and 5 chemos last week. The blood reports after a week's time from the 5th chemo were good, the doc said. This monday, we have been called by the doc as he wishes to check if the 6th chemo is needed. He too, has become very sensitive and irritable. I can totally understand what you're going through! Thankfully, such behaviour is tempor...

          You're really trying things out AMit and I hope something works good. I just didn't want you to leave aside the conventional option of chemo and radiation as very light chemos are available these days, with minimal side effects (as per my dad's oncologist). And believe me, the chemo that my dad got every week (the last one was 2 weeks ago), were really light, compared to the 3 weekly chemos. He barely had any nausea....

              Hi Amit,May I know why you're not considering the chemo and radiation options? My dad is being treated in Pune, who is fighting squamous cell carcinoma, which has spread to the nearby lymbh nodes is what the doc said. But the medical ongologist, after reviewing the reports of all the tests/ scans, said that it will be treated this time, and as per him, 50% of the patients don't have the recurrence of the cancer, but ...

                forgot to mention, his hasn't spread to the nearby organs, hence this one would work I guess ..

                  Hello Eric ! My dad is recently diagnosed with Esophagus cancer and he's already a heart patient, where in his heart's EF is 35% (meaning, that the pumping is just 35% as compared to 50-55% for the non- heart patient people), so the doctors have ruled out the surgery where in they cut the esophagus and attach the stomach to the throat. Hence, the best option for him is Chemoradiation. 5 days every week, radiations a...
