Hi everybody and thank you for you wonderful words and caring thoughts. My brother, Dave, had his 1st surgery 4/22; the 2nd on 5/27 (Stage IV with mets to the liver & peritoneal cavity). Since the beginning he has experienced intense abdominal pain and is now facing another surgery. Today a barium (through n/g) x-ray was taken to determine this new "blockage". His 2nd chemo treatment was due tomorrow but now may be postponed due to the possibility of another surgery. Can anyone give me some feedback/thoughts on this? Any similar experiences? I'm very discouraged at this point and am trying to remain positive. Please help!
