Fri, Jun 26 6:31pm · Laryngeal cancer (recurrence) in Head & Neck Cancer

Mark, we all ate ice cream, popcycles, ice, pudding, baked custard, etc. You're normal. I just wanted to SEE someone who had been through it. Where do you live? Happy to meet you for ice cream when you are in JAX. I always wear a mask, however…ha
Take care. You are over the worst.

A friend of mine did; you need to get it checked ASAP.

Mon, Jan 27 10:08am · Meet others living with Head & Neck Cancer - Come introduce yourself in Head & Neck Cancer

I have no idea of any way I can help – just am not acquainted with that
type. Hope all works out for you – you have had more than your share.

Feb 10, 2019 · Gastrectomy and bile reflux in Digestive Health

First, what isTG? I am more knowledgeable about esophagectomy problems, reflux, etc. Seldom do we have bile reflux, however.

Jan 23, 2019 · Need Patient's Experience with Mayo Clinic. Is it worth it? in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Yes, it's definitely worth it. I thought I had the best, but Mayo saved my life! Always ask your doctors how many times they have done a procedure, etc. Go where they do the procedure all the time!

Jun 23, 2017 · Esophageal cancer....transitioning to food in Head & Neck Cancer

We meet quarterly, the third Friday of January, April, July & October at 12:30 in the Vincent Stabile Building, Room 150 or 153. It is right behind Mayo’s parking garrage. Dr. Michael Wallace & Dr. Herb Wolfsen are doing the progrsm in July & in October another gastroenterologist there is presenting a program on the bacteria in our guts! We hear so much about that now – which is the good bactetia – which is bad – are we taking the wrong probiotics, etc. I am anxious to hear her. Dr. Wallace just spent a month working at the largest esophageal cancer center (hospital) in the world in Kenya!

Everyone is welcome – we talk about what works & what doesn’t work for us. We all have eating problems after procedures as well as dumping, etc. The bacteria in our guts have an effect on this, for sure…Newspapers, our cards & brochures all have my phone & email to contact me – I met new patient at Mayo this Monday & have an appointment to meet another next week. Let me know if we can help!

We don’t meet in November – we meet in OCTOBER! Coleen, if you can edit that for me, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

This site has removed my contact email and telephone number for esophageal cancer support. We will meet again at 12:30 October 20th on the Mayo campus in Jacksonville. You and your husband are most welcome to come. We share what works and doesn’t work to help each other. I also did a survey of members asking what they wish they had known prior to a procedure, when they were in the hospital as well as post procedure. It helps just to talk with someone who has been through the same protocol. I do hope your husband feels better.
