thank you so much for answering. My mum is on steroids for rheumatoid arthritis. She has pains in her ribs even drinking a cup of tea and was told it was Costochondritis. She has no pain at all and no problems at any time other than when she eats solid foods. She has to wait for it to go down as it gets stuck. The swallowing is fine, it just gets stuck until it finally goes down or she has to bring it back up
She has not seen a specialist, just the GP. She told him about her problems relating to food but he seemed to think it was a normal part of the problem.
thank you so very much. You read my mind, I am terrified that it can be that horrible nasty word.
My mum has been diagnosed as having "IT". I am terrified.
The Big C, thats what I was discussing with you previously
I am so sorry, my head is all over the place. My mum has been diagnosed with the big "C", sorry I just can't say it. She has it in the osoephagas. It is the one beginning with S something cells that is treated with radio/chemo. Can this actually shrink it or even kill it?
Thank you so much, I am truly living in hell at the moment. The CT scan showed a tiny lesion possibly on the lung and a couple of possible nodes outside the gullet but doctor didn't seem too worried about those. If they are there, will the chemo kill those too
