          Gloria, THANK YOU. I was extremely fortunate in getting a second opinion. If, would have been dead 6-7 years ago. You are a FOOL if you don't get a second or third opinion. Sam

Glad you are a survivor ....gives others hope... Thanks Wanda Frankly, without looking thru records,I would not be able to tell you. I do know that they stopped the Clinical trial as it was so "toxic" and did not improve the survivablit...

                  Kevin, great story.My story is VERY similar. I am 72 now-was diagnosed when I was 65. Live a very normal life, still work, play golf a LOT. And all due to getting a second opinion. Would have been dead 6-7 years ago if I had not got second opinion and got down to Masss General. Sam

                      Esophageal Cancer
                      Support

                      I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in Oct 2009-stage3/4. I went to Mass General for a clinical trial, did 9 weeks chemo, went thru surgery in Feb 2009 where they removed the lower part of the esophagus and upper third of my stomach. That was followed with 5 more weeks of chemo (they wanted me to do 9 weeks but it was too hard).As of right now ,I am cancer-free. I go every 3 months to get checked.
                      I would be glad to help/discuss,etc with anybody my experiences.Thanks,Sam rmbi1@maine.rr.com
