Radiation esophagus after effects
I’m looking for information, help, surgeries available, to help my 73 year old sister. I don’t live in same state and think she should go to Rochester Minn. for their opinion. They live in Wisconsin, so not too far away! Had esophagus cancer treatment July 2022. I’m sorry I don’t have all the details, it was stage 4. Dr. said cancer free but having terrible swelling since radiation. On feeding tube, trachea, can’t talk, in pain! Now they say she needs a softer trachea because in so much pain. Told her none available and probably take another three more months to get one in. Still has port in and Dr. said leave it in, not understanding that. Her significant partner has been by her side since day one and has saved her a couple of time from chocking and has given her the best care he possibly can. Very frustrating and stressful!!! Also any information on grants that could possibly help with cost. Any comments and suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you and God Bless you all!
