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!

Surgery for Esophagus Cancer, Esophagectomy - Mayo Clinic
Over time, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD, can lead to Barrett's esophagus, dysplasia or even esophagus cancer (adenocarcinoma.) This video shows how an esophagectomy removes abnormal or cancerous cells by removing part of the esophagus, the top part of the stomach and nearby lymph nodes. It also discusses some of the risks and possible complications of this operation. Mayo Clinic has a very large team with an international reputation for its skill in diagnosing and treating reflux, Barrett's esophagus and esophagus cancer.

Ivor Lewis procedure. Esophagectomy for cancer with 2F (two field) lymphadenectomy
Surgery remains a keystone in therapy for esophageal cancer. Thats why quality of surgical treatment is very important for the patient and disease prognosis. There are two basis approaches in surgery for cancer of oesophagus - transhiatal (without thoracotomy) and trasthoracic (with thoracotomy). As we see this problem 2F (two field) lymphadenectomy and radical (R0) resection is a crucial point of the treatment. It must be the aim of open or minimally invasive surgery According to this we believe that transthoracic (Ivor Lewis type) approach must be chosen for surgical treatment in patients with cancer of esophagus with intrathoracic localization. In this movie you can view surgical technique of open transthoracic esophagectomy with lymphadenectomy in both - abdominal and thoracic cavities.

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.

He was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Esophageal Cancer and Liver Cancer and was told there was no cure. Not willing to accept the Drs prognosis or their method of treatment he was looking for options. The Drs told Jerry since there was no cure, it was basically just keeping him alive with little quality of life. The rate of people who survive with traditional medicine is not far off of people who recieve no treatment, so he was going to give himself some time to try some Natural, Self Healing because he knew deep down Chemo and Radiation were not the solution. By Day 2 of His Cleanse, he could Breathe again, he said it felt like a weight had been lifted. Day 3 his gut Bloating was gone. After the Liver Cleanse day of the Cleanse he felt tremendous results. He started to feel better than he had in a long time. This triggered his thinking and he realized he had been sick for much longer than he knew. The last 2-3 years he thought that was just his new norm, not realizing how good he could actually feel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVP7kblS1UpHoJyrkqsGDmw #colonics #colonhydrotherapy #colonicsboise #colonhydrotherapyboise #guthealth

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.

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.

New Esophageal Cancer Treatment-Mayo Clinic
Cancer of the esophagus is like many other types of cancer. It's often curable if caught early. Treatment for esophagus cancer, even in the early stage, has traditionally been surgery — removal of the entire esophagus. But now, doctors at Mayo Clinic are using minimally invasive endoscopies to treat early cancers. Patients have the procedure and go home the very same day.

Esophageal cancer (squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma) risk, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment.
Esophageal cancer has two types; squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. squamous cell carcinoma; the risk factors for developement of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma are drinking alcohol, tobacco, diet factors such as eating nitosamines betel nuts, chronic ingestion of hot foods and beverages such as drinking hot tea, plummer vinson syndrome, achalasia, human papiilloma virus. The squamous cell carcinoma is common among African Americans. The location of squamous cell carcinoma occur anywhere in esophagus but the upper and middle thoracic esophagus is the common site. Adenocarcinoma; the main risk factor for developing esophageal adenocarcinoma is GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease) which cause the gastric acid to reach the esophagus and irritate the epithelium squamous epithelium of esophagus, where the chronic irritation makes the squamous epithelium of esophagus to turn into gastric epithelium which metaplasia will occur, where term for that metaplastic change is barret's esophagus. The barret esophagus increase the risk for development of adenocarcinoma of esophagus. The common location for adenocarcinoma of esophagus is distal of esophagus because next to it stomach is present. Caucasians and men commonly gets adenocarcinoma. Clinical features or symptoms of esophageal cancer are Dysphagia most common symptom, weight loss second common symptom, odynophagia, anorexia, aspiration pneumonia, respiratory symptoms, hematemesis, chest pain. Diagnosis of esophageal cancer; upper endoscopy with biopsy- definitive diagnosis. trans esophageal ultrasound- to know about depth of the tumor CT scan of chest/abdomen, chest x-ray, bone scan done to know metastatic of cancer. Staging of esophageal cancer. stage 1-tumor invade lamina propria, or submucosa, stage 2-a tumor invade muscularis propria or adeventita, stage 2b- tumor invade muscularis propria or adventitia with positive lymph node. stage 3- tumor invade adeventitia or tumor invade adjacent structure. stage 4- there will be distant metastasis. treatment for esophageal cancer; mostly esophageal cancer is diagnosed at late stage so palliation would be the goal. surgery would be treatment for stage 0,1,2a that is esophagectomy. chemotheapy with radiation before surgery would give better prognosis. prognosis. 20% survive for 1 year, 5-10% survive for 5 years.

Esophageal Stents: Placement, Complications, Tips, and Tricks
Abstract: Esophageal stents are widely used to treat a variety of problems, most commonly malignant dysphagia. Malignant dysphagia can be present in patients with unresectable, resectable, and potentially resectable cancer. Esophageal stents are also utilized to treat esophageal strictures, fistulas, perforations, and leaks. Stent placement usually requires both endoscopic and fluoroscopic guidances, but can be done with either modality safely. Most stents are placed distally and across the gastroesophageal junction, but proximal stent placement (which requires more precise placement) can also be performed. Complications include bleeding and perforation (which are rare) as well as migration, tumor overgrowth, and tumor ingrowth (which are more common). The techniques of placement of an esophageal stent with some tips and tricks regarding placement and management of complications are reviewed in the given video. This article is part of an expert video encyclopedia.
