Lee, google 'esophagectomy' and look for the infomation under the site by barrettsinfo. They have some very good information on that site.

I'd like to say that if there's any way to avoid the operation, please do everything you can to try another route. I hope the results come back and tell you that you're not at the cancer stage.
