uncle diagnosed with cancer

Hey all. Need you guys to send some thoughts/prayers out for my uncle. He was just diagnosed with esophageal cancer. His doc said he has maybe a 1 of 4 chance to kick its ass. He starts chemo this week going 5 times a week. They are going to have to put a feeding tube in him because his esophagous will swell shut with the chemo and radiation. Hes a pretty strong dude and stubborn as all hell so I am hoping he gets through this.

Thanks everyone

Yeah. He is going to have to stay on the tube throughout the whole thing. From what I heard, the mass is right where the esophagus connects to the stomach. Not great with my anatomy so I could be wrong. They have to connect pretty much straight to the stomach from what it sounds like. He lives in Montana so I am just being relayed the info.

Really sorry to hear that. Cancer sucks and chemo is a bitch. Esophageal is a tough one too. As for treatments, there's a lot of different variations of chemo out there. Some can be rather mild, but most is like loading up on the poison just enough so that it doesn't kill you. Not fun at all. He has a really rough road ahead of him. I wish the best for him.

OP, I'd suggest just doing what you can to help the family out. If he has grass to mow, knock it out for him. Bring the family a meal once in a while. That sort of thing helps a lot and is easy to do. If he's a tough guy by nature, this will be hard for him as he'll likely feel weak.

For those interested, esophageal cancer has many factors for occurring. It's typically brought on by irritation of the esophagus, which is the pipe that dumps food into your gut. Things that irritate it are reflux/heartburn, smoking, alcohol, weight, etc. A healthy lifestyle won't guarantee that you will be cancer free, but it certainly lowers your odds. This cancer is more prevalent in older males.

Just got an update from him today. He had his first radiation treatment and said he felt a little fatigued.

Keep the prayers coming folks. All of us really appreciate it.

got some pretty good news last night. He may not need the feeding tube for a bit. The doc was surprised he was doing good without the tube so they were going to fight against putting one in just yet.

He also went ahead and shaved off all his hair yesterday. He started his chemo and is now on both chemo and radiation treatments and is only complaining of fatigue still. The doc is also going to put a port in so he doesn't keep getting poked around with needles. Says his symptoms have been mild thus far.

So far he is doing well. He hasn't complained about too much lately. I am going to try and get a hold of him this week and I will post an update.
