My mom was recently diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the stomach. CT scan and x rays were negative. She had a scope and they found an ulcer, which came back malignant. She is 55 years old. Everything is extremely overwhelming and scary. She is having surgery Wednesday, and I guess we will have a better idea what to expect. They are hoping for a partial gastrectomy. Anyone who has information about this or has any advice, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
