  • A sad welcome to this group JaneyM1. You will be able to receive lots of advice here but, at the moment, you are in the waiting period between diagnosis and treatment plan. That’s one of the toughest places to be but, once you know this then there will definitely be people here who have been through the same treatment and will be able to share their own experiences. I was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in October 2023. Since then, I had endoscopy, CT scan, PET scans, laparoscopy, 8 weeks of FLOT chemotherapy and am now recovering from the oesophagectomy surgery that I had on 29th Feb. While many people on here will have had similar journeys to my own, others’ treatment plans have been quite different. Once you’ve had your post-scan meeting then you’ll be in a better position to get the advice you’re looking for. Stay strong and positive. Best wishes CB
