I am new to this site. A dear friend was recently diagnosed with squamous cell cancer. She is in her early sixties and has T3, Nx, M0.
She is in her second 3 week chemo cycle and has another CT scan in about 2 weeks. She then needs to decide whether to have surgery or 2 more cycles of chemo combined with daily radio. The doc says at her stage on cancer the survival statistics are similar.
The surgery may be an Ivor Lewis or something else but is serious- 6 hours and 10 days in hospital.
I wonder if anyone on this site has faced the same choices and how they decided and why. Thank you very much!
