Re: Stomach Cancer: Stomach removed
I just found out that my cousin in Germany had her complete stomach removed a little over a months ago. When I asked her about chemo and radiation she told me doctor said no cancer in the lining, cancer only in the stomach, and she does not need any chemo or radiation. She is 86 and I wonder if the doctors told her the truth, I find it very unusual not to have any theatment after the operation. They connected her esophagus to the small intestine.
The only symptom she had, she had to drow up and she felt weak and fell down in the bathroom. Her husband called 911 and in the hospital they did tests and found the cancer.
She is feeling good mow, can eat anything she wants, just has to make sure she eats little portions, about 6 times a day. My 86 year old cousin is the "new 66" as they say, very active, but lost lots of weight, now she is running around downtown to get new clothes, etc. etc. I just hope she is really cancer free.
