Adenocarcinoma, stage 4, local metastatic.
Hello! My dad is currently undergoing treatment for his recently diagnosed Adenocarcinoma, stage 4, local metastatic esophageal cancer(July 14th)He recently underwent 5 weeks of daily proton beam therapy and 5 weekly chemo doses. Last doses Oct. 5th. Lots of issues with nausea and vomiting, despite round the clock anti emetics. Receiving intermittent IVF in Rochester for severe dehydration and malnutrition.
PET scan on 10.26.23 with a possible Ivor Lewis Technique esophagectomy scheduled for 11.06.23 ( assuming no cancer detected on PET scan).
Anyone have any advice for surgery?
