My daughter was just diagnosed with stomach cancer 2 days ago. They found it while doing a scope. She is only 35 years old. She has been having a lot of heartburn, a little nausea and some diarrhea. The first Dr. she went to told her she had chronic heartburn and she would have it the rest of her life. Thank God she didnt accept that answer and went to another Dr. She was so smart to listen to her body as she doesnt usually go to Dr.s So for her to push was good. The next one she went to ordered an ultra sound and another test, not sure of the exact name, but Hia something. Basically they were both to check out the gall bladder. They came back with no problems. That Dr. referred her to a specialist. GI Dr. He oredered the scope. The Dr. went in after the test and unfortunately I was not there but my other daughter was with her. They were told she had a tumor or mass in her stomach and that it was cancer. They did a biopsy. They scheduled an appointment for a surgeon for this coming wed and an oncologist for this thursday. We dont know anything. We are so scared and uninformed. It seems as though the more I read online the more confused we get. I know it is a waiting game. How horrible. I spent the whole weekend with my daughter and am home now. I feel like I need to be with her. I know it is silly, I only live 15 minutes away from her. Can anybody give me any hints or clues from personal experience they can share rather than informal info from the net.
Wow, that felt really good to get that all out.
