Re: son 46 with stomach cancer

I am sorry that your son is going through this. I have a friend who had this operation. A lot depends on what they find, but I am guessing they will remove a large part of his stomach and reconnect what is left. It is similar to a stomach bypass for weight loss. My friend, although cancer-free at the moment, is very restricted in what she can eat and always will be. I wish your family all the best. Sera

Re: son 46 with stomach cancer

always have faith in our Lord and Mother Mary. Try to pray while doing tasks
Like cooking or sitting in the car
