SHE IS NORMAL, I MEAN EATING IN PUBLIC W OUT HAVING TO SPIT UP AND KIDS SAYING YUCK!

Hi, my son was born with TEF also. He's 3 and has 3 dilations. Our GI doc said that some kids need more dilations than others. But your daughter's symptoms are exactly the same as my son's when his esophagus has narrowed too much. I recommend getting another dilation procedure. Sometimes it takes a few before they work. Good luck to you! Christine www.sugarplumswank.blogspot.com

My brother has stage 4 esophageal cancer . He started chemo in Nov. 2011 and when he was scanned in Jan. it showed the tumors in the esophagas had shrunk, but the tumors in the liver had multiplied and were still growing. They added herceptin to his treatment, and after another scan, the liver tumors are still growing. What are his chances now of remission?
