Hello, I am 36 years old and was diagnosed with stomach cancer in April. On June 3rd I had a tumor removed at the GE juncture. I now have only 40% of my original stomach. Two of the seven nearby lymph nodes were positive for cancer. Is this a bad sign? I will be starting treatment very soon. Can anyone tell me about the protocol they went through? Does chemo come first, then radiation? Can they happen together? What types of chemo did you use? I'm considering a clinical trial at Stanford. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
