My Husbands Esophagectomy-Frank & Lisa Poteet
My Husband & My Journey As We Together Fight Esophageal Cancer & Our Determination To Win. My Husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Esophageal Cancer in April 2013. He wanted to document our journey as we fight this cancer together. The doctors told us he had signs of both types of esophageal cancer-Adenocarcinoma & Squamous cell carcinoma. He was treated aggressively with radiation and 3 different forms of chemo. He started his treatments the end of May. By the middle of June, he was so weak I was having to carry him to his treatments. On June 27, he had 2 strokes and 11 seizures in less than 12 hours. The doctors found a 4 inch long area of clots in his brain. He almost didn't make it. He continued his cancer treatments while he was in the hospital. They never stopped his treatments. After he completed all his radiation and chemo treatments, they gave him time to build up his strength for his surgery. On Sept. 3, he had an esophagectomy, in which the doctors removed his esophagus, top portion of his stomach and several clusters of lymph nodes. His lymph nodes were in areas the doctors had never seen before. On Aug. 30, the doctor told us, my husband still had active cancer cells. This is a video to show you just a little of what he went through in the hospital after his esophagectomy. We have other video's on YouTube documenting our journey as we together fight esophageal cancer and to show our determination to win!

How to eat after surgery for cancer of the oesophagus or stomach
For more information about eating after oesophagus or stomach surgery go to the Cancer Research UK website http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/type/oesophageal-cancer/living/diet-after-oesophageal-cancer#surgery Eating after surgery to your oesophagus or stomach can mean that when and how you eat is different. So, what changes do you need to make to carry on enjoying food and stay well? Find out from a specialist dietician about what you need to do to in this video. After your operation when you are recovering in hospital, you will have plenty of support from your dietician. You will be able to gradually build up what you eat and drink. However when you go home things may be more difficult. The amount of food and drink you can manage at any one time will be less. In general 6-7 small meals a day is best. Have a selection of foods that are ready prepared to eat whenever you fancy them. How you should eat: - Make sure you are relaxed and calm - Chew your food - Take it slowly - Sit upright - Don't lie down to soon after eating - Drinks can be filling so avoid drinking from 15 to 30 minutes before eating Generally you can continue eating what you like but in smaller portions. Making a few small changes can avoid weight loss and poor appetite. Suggested changes: - Graze on high energy foods throughout the day - Choose full fat foods - Avoid food labelled low fat or diet foods If you're having a problem with reflux, make sure you don't eat too late at night and try sleeping propped up with pillows. Continue eating and drinking even if you have diarrhoea as this will help to control your bowels and will keep you hydrated. Remember if any of these issues continue for more than a few days contact your doctor or specialist nurse as there are medications you can be given to control the issues. Bloating, sweating or palpitations can occur when you take on too many sugary foods. This is called Dumping Syndrome. To avoid this, eat smaller portions of sugary foods as part of meal times. If you are having problems, contact your doctor or dietician.

Cancer dies when you eat these 5 foods time to start eating them ! 5 Anti Cancer Foods
Cancer is multifaceted, and generally treated with big pharma products, like chemicals, radiation, and chemotherapy. What if there were foods that naturally killed cancer ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpHcLxD8Drk Please subscribe and watch this video until the end to know the complete information. These are the 5 foods that help get rid of cancer cells developing in our bodies. 1. THE BLUEBERRY And RASPBERRY EFFECT. Blueberries and raspberries are plants that are well known by their anti cancer capabilities, especially when it comes to ovarian cancer. Phytochemicals are the reason why they have their dark hue. and the secret of their effectiveness, which are proven to be great for cancer prevention. 2. GREEN TEA. Tea is the best source of catechins in the human diet, and green tea contains about three times the quantity of catechins found in black tea. In laboratory studies, green tea has been shown to slow or completely prevent cancer development in colon, liver, breast and prostate cells. 3. THE TOMATO EFFECT. According to recent Harvard research, there is up to 50% reduction in chances for prostate cancer in people who regularly ate cooked tomatoes. It was proven that tomatoes are incredibly effective in inhibiting the angiogenesis, and the reason why this fruit is so effective is that they contain high amounts of a substance called lycopene, which has strong anti angiogenic properties. In addition, lycopene concentration increases when it is subjected to higher temperatures. That is why cooked tomatoes are very effective when it comes to stopping cancer growth. 4. DARK CHOCOLATE. For many people this is almost unbelievable. Dark chocolate is an incredibly tasty dessert, which also happens to be incredibly healthy to eat, it is good for your heart condition, your overall happiness and also for fighting cancer cells. 5.

Esophageal Cancer - What Happens After 5 Years
http://www.dailyrx.com/ Reaching the five-year milestone after surgery to treat esophageal cancer is cause for celebration. And many patients may be reaching this milestone. A new study found that survival up to 15 years was high in patients who had surgery for locally advanced esophageal cancer and lived at least five years. But these patients showed continual risk for cancer recurrence and other health issues. Brendon M. Stiles, MD, of Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, led this study. Dr. Stiles and team studied the health records of over 350 patients who had locally advanced esophageal cancer. Esophageal cancer is a cancer of the esophagus, which carries food from the mouth to the stomach. The median age of these patients was 64. All of the patients had surgery to remove the portions of the esophagus that were cancerous. Five years after surgery, 41 percent of these patients were still alive. In those patients who survived for five years after surgery, 89 percent were still alive after seven years. After 10 years, 73 percent were still alive, while 57 percent were still alive after 15 years. Dr. Stiles and team found that 23 percent of the five-year survivors developed recurrent esophageal cancer (cancer that came back). Most of the recurrences (75 percent) happened within five years of the initial surgery. About 33 percent of those who had recurrent cancer survived to 10 years after surgery. "The annualized risk of recurrence was 1.4 percent per year until year 10," Dr. Stiles said in a press release. Dr. Stiles and team said esophageal cancer patients should be monitored for at least 10 years after surgery due to the risk of recurrence.

Owner discusses cat's cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery
Pistache is an 18-year-old female spayed domestic shorthair cat belonging to Sylvie Bermingham. Pistache was diagnosed with an inoperable oral squamous cell carcinoma (aggressive oral cancer) in late May of 2008. She had a large tumor between her mandibles (lower jaw) and also had metastatic disease in the draining lymph nodes (somewhat unusual for oral squamous cell carcinoma). Pistache's tumor responded wonderfully to an alternating protocol combining mitoxantrone and carboplatin, two chemotherapy agents that are frequently used in cats. She ate better, gained weight, and is still doing well a year after diagnosis. This condition normally has a 1 to 3 month prognosis for survival when inoperable.

High Volume Surgeons Get Better Survival Rates for Esophageal Cancer Surgery Patients
Patients who receive surgery for esophageal cancer see a much higher chance of extended survival if the procedure is conducted by a surgeon who has performed this particular operation on many prior occasions. This discovery is according to a recent, large-scale study conducted by Swedish researchers at Karolinska Institute, which is published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. In their publication, the researchers claim that esophageal cancer surgery should be left to fewer surgeons with more experience.

Refusing Surgery for Esophageal Cancer May Cause Severe Consequences for Patients
This press conference took place on January 30, 2018, at the STS 54th Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For more information, contact media@sts.org. Patients with esophageal cancer who refuse surgery when it is recommended are less likely to survive long term than similar groups of patients who undergo an operation, according to research presented today at the 54th Annual Meeting of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. “Although it may be tempting for patients to opt for nonsurgical treatment for cardiothoracic diseases in order to avoid the perceived pain and complications of surgery, this choice may come with a price,” said senior author Brendon M. Stiles, MD, of Weill Cornell Medicine in New York, NY. “In our study, we show that even if patients recommended for surgery elect to pursue other treatments, they do more poorly than if they had included surgery as part of their treatment.” Dr. Stiles and colleagues from Weill Cornell Medicine queried the National Cancer Database for patients with esophageal cancer from 2004 to 2014. The researchers identified 18,549 patients, including 708 patients who were recommended for surgery but declined. Within this group, instead of surgery, 41% (292) of patients were treated with definitive chemoradiation, 36% (256) with sequential chemotherapy/radiation, 8.2% (58) with radiation and/or chemotherapy alone, and 14% (102) received no treatment. Propensity matching was performed to compare patients who refused surgery to those treated with preoperative therapy followed by surgery (525 in each group). Median survival was significantly better in the neoadjuvant group with surgery than in patients who refused an operation, 32 months vs. 22 months, respectively.

Esophagectomy Video – Brigham and Women’s Hospital
Esophageal cancer. Daniel C. Wiener, MD, a thoracic surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, describes a minimally invasive esophagectomy to treat esophageal cancer. A minimally invasive esophagectomy begins with five small incisions, about the size a thumbnail, in the abdomen. Surgeons insert a camera and smaller laparoscopic instruments through the incisions. During this portion of the procedure surgeons free up the stomach from its blood supply and all of its attachments so that they can reconstruct the esophagus. At that same time surgeons also free up part of the esophagus located in the abdomen. Once the esophagus has been removed, the next step is to transform the stomach into a tube and reconnect it. While the new connection is healing patients receive nutritional support through a feeding tube. Within a month following the surgery a patient can resume a regular diet; though patients may need to eat smaller, more frequent meals until they have completely recovered. With one of the largest thoracic surgery divisions in the country, surgeons at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have extensive collective experience in the treatment of patients with esophageal cancer.
