Just a quick line to say hi.
I was diagnosed with Oesophageal Cancer 2 weeks ago and on Wednesday I received the results of my CAT scan and the biopsies taken during endoscopy last week.
Unfortunately I've shown almost no symptoms of the cancer, so the diagnosis was a complete surprise. It has already metastasised and surrounds my aorta, so is inoperable. It is located at the junction of the oesophagus and stomach.
I start EOX chemotherapy on Thursday.
I shan't ask how the chemo will affect me, as cancer runs in my family and I know from experience that the side effects vary from patient to patient.
I do have another question - but I'll ask that in the questions forum
bye for now
