I am 51 and was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus in May of this year after years of indigestion and reflux that I did nothing about. (what sent me to my doctor was that I vomited blood). After staging I was told that I had very early cancer, stage 1 with 1 lymph node involved. I was told that I would need chemo and then surgery. I have just finished 3 months of chemo and saw my oncologist yesterday and he said I would need 3 more months of chemo after surgery, is this normal? I found chemo very hard and felt so ill for a lot of the time. I have had to have quite a lot of time off of work which I didn't really want to do (I am a nurse). I am not sure I can face another 3 months of chemo
