Brief Answer:
Better to try palliative care

Detailed Answer:
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I can only say that esophageal carcinoma spreads fast.
and the option of starting chemotherapy is absolutely a personal choice.
yes it has side effects but it's the only option available, specially since the first therapy is failing.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
