Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community

I'm really sorry to hear that your husband's oesophagus cancer has spread to his spine. I can't answer your question as I've just popped in from the melanoma group having noticed that your post had gone unanswered. By replying it will nudge it back to the top of the page where someone with the experience you need may see it and be able to reply.

While you're waiting for replies you could post your question in ask a nurse and one of the specialist nurses will try and respond within 2 working days. Alternatively you could give the Macmillan Support Line a call on 0808 808 0000. It's free to call and staffed by specialist cancer nurses from 9am to 8pm Monday to Friday.

Sending you a supportive ((hug))
