I recently found out that my dad has advanced stomach cancer. He went in for an operation on Mon morning to have 60% of his stomach removed, because the doctor had been pretty sure that the cancer had not spread. However, when they operated they found that it was much more advanced than originally anticipated. I'm terrified.....I'm only 25 years old and my dad is only 51 - I never thought something like this would happen until I was much older. We lost my grandfather only a year ago to lung cancer. The doctor's prognosis is not good - but he always seems to add in that there is a chance of remission. Is there anyone here who has gone into remission while in the advanced stages of this disease that can give my family hope?
