Throughout the summer I really wasn't feeling very well. I was run down, unmotivated and had a sense of things falling apart. The last week of October I had test run to see if I needed my Gallbladder taken out. The results came back showing that my gallbladder was only operating at 9%. Then on the 5th of November I went through the surgery.

The symptoms did not go away, so then about a week later a CT scan was ordered along with an endoscopy. At that time they found blockage in my esophagus. A biopsy was taken and the results came back on November 29th that I had Esophageal Cancer.  The next day,  a PET scan was taken,  showing  that the cancer had spread to some of my bones, as well, making it Advanced Stage IV Esophageal Cancer.
