what should I do now? I need some advice .
I come from Vietnam- an asian country . my father was diagnosed as stomach cancer 1 month ago. the doctor advised him to make the biopsy but they found no cancer cells. they did that three times more but still found no cancer cells. But they decided to make surgery to cut my father's stomach so that they can ensure there was no risk of cancer. After that, they said that the cancer spread all my father' Abdominal organs and also the liver( 1 Cm). the doctors advised us not to do the chemo and rediation because they only made my father die faster they said my father's life would last about 2 months. what should I do now? Is there any hope for my father. My father is still young . he is only 45 years old. my sister is only 8 years now and i am is 18. My mother almost collapsed. we don't want to lose my father. please anwer me soon or could any of you introduce to me some doctors to get the advice. please
sorry for my bad english but i hope you can answer me

Im sorry to hear that..
My dad has stomach cancer and it spread up.
He did 7 weeks of Chemo then a 13 hour surgery. He just finished his radiation.
He has lived with Cancer for 7 months... EVERY case is differant.
He has lost about 100 pounds and is very very weak..
He cant really eat, its hard to watch them be sick. I know!!!

I understand how hard it is to get bad news. I also know how hard it is to be strong.
Your mom and sister will need you.. so stay strong!!!!

I understand just how you feel, i was diagnosed with stomach cancer 9/23/09, and my doctor had taken 3 or 4 biopsies and found nothing until they went into me to do a gastrectomy. I will be having chemo and I am praying for everything to go well, I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Hi,

Thank God, I and nobody in my family suffered from this stomach diagnosis.
I do understand your feelings and how hard it is to get bad news. I also know how hard it is to be strong.
Your family need you, so stay strong and keep patience.

Hi,

You just need to one thing is just keep patience and be strong enough as I already told you and tell me one thing that he is n which stage as, if he is on the third stage than, we canat do anything, but if he is on the first or second stage than there is a ray of light as, there must be some solution can be done by taking radiations.

Just hope for the best and be strong.
