Hang in there. I had the exact same situation as yourself. A routine endoscopy revealed high grade dysplasia. I saw 4 different specialists to see if I could just have it endoscopically resected. None of them recommended it. I hear you about the angels overhead, mine turned out to be a stage I Ca that was also showing aggressive features. Narrowly avoided chemo. I've just had my takedown and am now adjusting to using the pouch. Its been one hell of a year but I'm trying to focus on the positives! My recommendation is to take it a day at a time!
All the best,
