My husband was diagnosed with OC in September had a stent put in October then started chemo, February it was good news tumour was contained in the same area, of the oesophagus had 4 rounds of  herceptin. Now got back from the meeting following CT scan and been told the cancer has now spread to more lymph nodes, more in lungs and the liver already invading the stomach. So now he is starting on paclitaxel
