My mom just got out of surgery and got 3/4 of her stomach removed. What we initially thought was an early detection was found to have spread throughout her abdomen area. The doctors are saying radiation won't help because it has spread so widely in her lower abdomen. Chemo is an option, but it has been suggested that foregoing chemo so she has a better quality of life is also an option; which means it's too late. I'm sad, can't sleep, and love my mother very much. I'm hoping for a miracle or some kind of treatment which has worked for others. If anyone has anything that they can share, I know the reality of it all, but don't want to give up.
