Good on you Jungleroombear.

The Get Well Ken thread should be moved to All Elvis section where more members may notice it. I'm sure there are plenty of folks who want to wish him the best.

Ken's just posted this UPDATE over at the other place -

Just a brief update....
I have today been accepted for clinical trials for my treatment and will be having chemotherapy that includes an infusion into the vein in the hand that will take 4 hours once every three weeks with two different cancer drugs paclitaxel and carboplatin ,the innfusion will be once every 3 weeks and may last for 9,12 or 15 weeks also àt some point during the treatment i will have 23 sessions of radio therapy to shrink the tumor and kill the cancer cells and lymph nodes.All body hair is looking like it will fall out.....dont even dare me to get an Elvis wig to go with my shirts Rob!!!Then 8 weeks to build my strength up before the Oesophectomy sometime early in the new year.i have finished all the tests in hospital and have a feeding tube fitted to put some extra calories in ,i will be discharged on Sunday to have a week of rest before The treatment starts,
