  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read that your husband's oesophageal cancer operation wasn't able to go ahead because of complications and I can understand why you'd both be so upset.

    I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you also post this in the oesophageal cancer group, which I can see you've joined, as you'll then connect directly with other people who may have had a similar problem.

    If you'd like to do this, clicking on the link I've created will take you straight there.

    Sending you a virtual (((hug)))
