Mike finished his chemo yesterday. The cumulative effects of four rounds beginning in early July are making him pretty uncomfortable, and the next couple weeks aren't going to be much fun for him.
PET scan scheduled for later this month, with a follow-up endoscopy in October. No surgery. He feels that, at his age, an esophagectomy would result in too many challenging lifestyle changes. He will have surveillance endoscopies for the remainder of his life, and we will hope that nothing new turns up.
That's unlikely, of course. Esophageal cancers frequently recur. But we will deal with that if and/or when it happens.
