Five days after inserting a stent into a completely blocked oesophagus because of the size of the tumour, still suffering from strong pain across the chest and stomach and... still unable to swallow either liquid or solid! Any advice of what should be done to remedy the situation? Many thanks.

After discussions with a surgeon for my dad he recommended acupuncture. Has anyone found anything that can help fight this type of cancer? Thanks

hi how are you now? Had the pain eased.  We are in a quandary about having a stent fitted for mum but have been told it can be so very sore. I hope you feel better
