Esophageal Cancer

This past summer, I was diagnosed with EC. I completed chemo/rad foloowed by surgery August 12. My medical is due at this time. The pathology showed cancer in 1 of 40 lymph nodes. My AME tells me that I need to wait until August, because they will not issue a SI until I have my 1 year rescans because of a node being positive. Someone respond to this and tell me if this is the case.
Your AME is correct.They will want to wait for at least one year. You will need a a complete oncology evaluation including at least a CT scan and probably a PET/CT fusion scan. They may also want a followup EGD.
