The truth is this is an devastating diagnosis. Cure rates are unheard of and mortality over 5 years is quite high. Symptoms tend to be very difficult to manage. After surgery, the esophagus is gone. There is a high rate of nausea/vomitting. Feeding tubes are common. I wish him Gods Speed, but would recommend he consider Palliative Care Medicine as symptoms will be nearly unbearable.
