Anyone have any good sources of information on Esophageal Cancer? I am almost 2 years post lobectomy for stage 1A adenocarcinoma. Last couple of months have had difficulty swallowing. Had endoscopy on 5/16 and they found several things wrong. Nissen Fundoplication failing, diverticulum and they did biopsy on nodule. Doc isn't being too forthcoming, just states that nodules in esophagus are uncommon and to wait for biopsy results. He is one doctor who isn't too happy with questions. Have to wait till the 31st for results. Does the waiting bother anyone else? It usually drives me crazy. I have done some research and have found that only a small percentage of nodules in the espohagus are benign. Anyone else with a similar problem with positive outcome? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
