My DH has had severe problems with GERD and a hyatial hernia (sp?). Well even though I told the doctors he needs surgery they refused. My husband just got back from his intake app. with a new doctor. The doctor said by the way it looks, he may be in the early stages of esophigal(sp?) cancer. I am freaking out I need some advice. I posted here cause I know more people hang out in this section. What am I goping to do? What do I do?

First of all CALM DOWN! I know that's hard right now, but he needs to focus his energies on healing right now, not worrying about you. Second, there will be some time involved here, and you will get sick too if you spend that whole time all wound up. They will do more tests, and then depending on what the results of those test are, the doctor will give you alternatives and a recommendation. I know anytime a person hears the word 'cancer" they freak and want it surgically removed like yesterday, but it takes several weeks to months to get everythying decided and coordinated. Surgery may not even be needed, you never know. Please be calm for both your sakes, and best of luck. You have all our prayers.
