My Dad had oesophagus cancer his treatment ended 3 years ago December. He had 1 months of intense radiotherapy only every day. 3 years down the line and all scans are clear and no narrowing of his oesophagus. Question, would he still be getting side effects from his treatment now?

  • Hello Twixy

    What kind of side effects is your dad experiencing? Have you been in touch with your GP about this? My dad has had chemo for his OC but not radiotherapy so I'm unsure what to suggest. I would definitely ask your doctor for advice as there's so much uncertainty around cancer. I hope you get some answers and reassurance.
