Default I passed

11-yrs ago I dx w/esophageal cancer and given ~30% chance of survival.

After 196 hrs Chemo, 30 days Rad & 8+ hr surgery to remove my entire esophagus and part of my stomach, and today's test results, I remain CANCER FREE

NEVER believe cancer is a death sentence!

Damn, that's great! I'm sure everyone here has lost loved ones to cancer, so it's nice to hear when someone tells the big C to get ****ed.

What kind of impairment, if any, will you have as a result of losing that stuff?

Congratulations! Just curious, what they use to replace your esophagus? Gortex?

They pulled the rest of my stomach up and attached it at my throat, literally.

I have no dietary restrictions and take 0 medications, for any reason!

All procedures done at The James, Ohio State University.

See, a REAL car guy would have had them use heater hose, or some fuel line for a replacement esophagus!
