How are you dealing with the news of your prognosis for esophageal cancer?

Comment from: disgypsy, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: May 02

Sinemet (cardopa/ levodopa}. Good results were practically immediate! I could stand and walk without falling. Could write normally again. Did not have the "mask" anymore. Walked with longer strides and my arms were swinging more. Already have GERD, so did not have problems with chewing and swallowing. Thank you for your information.
