I felt much the same as you when my husband was diagnosed with the same disease. He had a nasal feeding tube for four and a half months, radio/chemo and he had his esophagus surgery 1.5 wks ago. The waiting is horrible. now we are on the other side of surgery, its still hard as recovery will take a while.
My hubby joined the volunteer physio session at FSH which was great!! and recommend you enquire about it at the hospital, as your hubbys fitness will be considered for a surgery date.
He built up ready for the op, stayed positive and went through each step at a time.
Post surgery his outlook is good and sometime soon I will have my man back to normal, bossing me around. They can cure or manage it for a very long time.
Once treatment has finished, you will be amazed how well he is.
Wishing you a bright future xxxx
Cathyedu thank you for your reply, I am uplifted by your positive story (if a cancer experience can be such a thing?!).
Unfortunately for us, our story wasn’t one of the good ones. Brett died on January 17, 2015, 42 days after his diagnosis. Our children were 2, 3 and 5. Our oldest child started primary school just 9 days after his funeral. He was 35.
I like to think that Brett’s death at such a young age was to spare others, it’s just a belief I have, and so, with that in mind, I do believe your husband will be bossing you around very soon, and I look forward to hearing about it when he does!
Ours wasnt a good outcome, but I pray that yours will be. 💛
My husband was diagnosed with esophegeal cancer stage 3/4 a year ago. We now have 11 folfox chemo treatments and 5 immunotherapy fusions under our belt, and have a pet scan next week. Not many people have this type of cancer, it is hard for me to find others who are dealing with it. Right now my main focus is chemo anger.....my husband is starting to become physical with me...and I am concerned. Anyone want a pen pal?? I am 66 but very young at heart.....
