Hi Marydoll123 and welcome to the online community
I'm very sorry to hear that your husband has advanced gullet cancer with a secondary in his liver.
I don't have the experience you're looking for but noticed that your post hadn't had any responses yet. By replying to you it will 'bump' your post back to the top of the page where it'll be more easily seen.

When you have a minute it would be really useful if could pop something about your husband's journey so far into your profile as it helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis.

Hi Marydoll, my husband was diagnosed with the same condition as your husband in July 2019. He has had 8 rounds of chemotherapy and five of Herceptin every three weeks. He is doing alright except for side effects of hand and foot syndrome due to chemo. What Ken is focusing on is that his Macmillan Nurse told us about a man who was the same as Ken and has been on Herceptin and is doing very well after two years. We know everyone is different but it does give you some hope. Hope this is a little helpful and good luck with your journey. It would be good to keep in touch.
Thanks Sue, this gives me a lot of hope, I’m sure you understand that the not knowing is difficult. It sounds like your husband has had the same amount of chemo as Tim my husband, Tim suffered badly as well with his feet and hands, he ended up having steroid cream which really helped. Tim is just starting to get his strength back now his chemo has finished. Yes it would be good to keep in touch
