Shaun, just want to wish you the very best outcome for your surgery tomorrow. It will be a tough journey but your strength of character shines through, stay strong. I have an acquaintance who is currently 10 years post oesophagectomy for cancer and who is fit and well thanks to an amazing surgeon and excellent NHS care.
I'm also facing surgery tomorrow but mine seems minor by comparison and I feel blessed to have been spared the cancer. You're in my thoughts.

Just a quick note to say thanks for your good wishes. I'm alive and recovering well, 14 days post operative, and hope to be home in a week.

I'll post a full update when I'm settled back at home

Hi all Smile

I'm now 25 days post op and at home recovering. It's slow progress, but I saw my GP yesterday and she's very happy with me. I'm obviously still very sore and have very little energy, but am now eating regular tiny portions of food and having protein shakes & supplements.

The morning I was discharged the consultant told me that they had biopsied the 35 lymph nodes they removed and not one showed any trace of cancer. He says it's not a 100% guarantee that I'm clear, but it's the best prognosis we could have hoped for Big%20smile

Shaun - so delighted that you had the very best possible outcome from your biopsies. You can now focus on your recovery without that dreadful fear that worse was yet to come. I hope you feel a little stronger with each week that passes and that you can look forward with confidence. Thanks for sharing your experiences and keep us posted as someone else out there will be on the same journey at some point. Every good wish, be kind to, and patient with, yourself. Sue.
