Hi my dad has esophageal cancer stage 3 ,, he has lost so much weight . And can not breath very well. As his right lungs has fill with fluid. And we think this is all so affected .. With cancer . He is on steroids. And about start chemo.. Has had surgery. To remove the tumor but it came back . He can't have radiotherapy. As he is to weak and ill. How long do you think he has left .. And do you thin alternative treatment help..thanks.....julia
My father was diagnosed exactly 3 years ago and they said he had 6 weeks to live...he had chemo and radiotherapy and though his health did gradually worsen...he is now virtually blind etc, he is only on death's bed now...went into hospital last night and we don't know the prognosis, but the point is they can iive maybe 2/ 2 1/2 years if lucky.
My mother in law is living with esophageal cancer II stage how much time it will take to turn into III stage ?
You can never give an answer to how long does someone have to live. But I can tell you that my father died of esophageal cancer and from the time he was diagnosed to the time he died was about 3 or 4 years. But during that time, he had chemo treatments, had to get a feeding tube, lost a ton of weight....chemo is miseriable and it is not a cure.
It would depend on what stage the cancer is at , and also everyone is different ,so it would depend on how fast the cancer spread x
