Two months diagnosed

June 21, 2019 - 09:27

Hi, I have been diagnosed with cancer of the lower oesophagus and top of stomach. I have had the FLOT regime of chemotherapy. I have received 3 bouts of it. Advised it would be rough and I do find it hard. The plan is to have 4 chemo sessions and then hopefully surgery, and four more chemo after operation. Feeling hopeful.

Dear Anne, thank you for your post and for sharing your story. Chemotherapy in undoubtedly hard physically as well as having to manage the emotional effects of having a cancer diagnosis. I hope your remaining chemotherapy sessions and your surgery go well. If you would like to speak with a nurse for any advice or support please call 1800200700. Kind Regards
