My BF, Scissors, has stomach cancer dxed in January. He had 6 weeks of chemo and radiation followed by major surgery last Monday to remove his stomach. He is still in the hospital (though not in intensive care anymore) They didn't find any cancer spread to other organs.
We are still waiting for results of the pathology report to determine if any cancer cells are in the lymph nodes. He has to have another course of chemo when he is healed. He is on a lot of IV pain med but said today that he "feels less shitty than yesterday." he is getting a protein liquid by tube and wishes he could have a homemade fruit punch.
I am optimistic that he will do well. He has been sitting up and walking a little, and tonight he was watching TV for the first time.
He has a huge wound and scar which will take a while to heal. It will eventually be a cure (we hope.) It will be a long journey but we are taking it on.
