I have a stomach tumor and cancer. After several rounds of chemo the pet showed no signs of cancer. However, the tumor remains. The Surgeon prescribed radiation and then partial or complete gastrectomy. I've just finished the radiation and remaining chemo. I now have to wait 4 weeks for a pet and ct before speaking with the surgeon again. I am very apprehensive about the possibility of complete gastrectomy. The partial doesnt seem to bother me nearly as much. I guess I'm just trying to find someone that has already gone through this to get their perspective. This is my first post here or anywhere concerning this.
