In brief: You should consider

Consider taking treatment especially to open up your esophagus so that you can eat and enjoy your life.
It is easy to open the esophagus with radiotherapy. This treatment is free from any serious side effects. The medical treatments for this cancer are not useful once it spreads to bones. Most patients live 6-12 months but there are exceptions.
