About a month ago I started noticing that I was feeling my food travel down to my stomach more than I previously had. I have sarcoidosis so initially put it down to this, but after a fortnight of omeprazole having no effect I was scheduled for a scope which happened on Monday. Nurse who did it found something "nasty" right at the junction of stomach and oesophagus and I await biopsy results but she more or less confirmed that it was malignant.
At 39 with two very young kids I've been scouring the Internet for stories of survivors and support to give me some hope. I'm determined to fight this but absolutely terrified.
They say if it hasn't spread there is a chance I will get surgery. My liver function tests have come back normal (and unchanged from my sarcoidosis review 8 weeks ago) and I had a chest x ray done then which didn't show anything. She also had a look in my stomach which was clear, and as these are seemingly the most likely locations for it to spread I'm clinging desperately to these as "good" signs. Would love to hear stories of survivors, especially who had a similar symptoms to mine. I cam still eat whatever I want with no issue other than this uncomfortable feeling when the food is about to enter the stomach.
Thanks in advance (and hello)
