Hi, my 55-yo husband was recently diagnosed with stage iv adenocarcinoma, metastasized to liver and very extensive throughout abdomen. Was offered surgery, with little idea of whether it could be done, and opted for aggressive chemo (5-FU, cisplatin, epirubicin). We expect the chemo to shrink the tumors so that we can consider stomach resection as additional treatment. We'd really appreciate input from any patients on chemo experience and surgery experience. He is in excellent health otherwise, a tennis player. Would like to hear advice especially on surgery and recovery.
