My mother has stage 4 stomach cancer. During her first surgery they removed 75% of her stomach. The surgery was performed with mistakes and with no follow up chemo or radiation. So the cancer kept spreading and she had canceramotosis (cancer on her intestine linings) and her peritoneum. The second surgery did not give any results, so they basically opened her up and closed again. She receieved two heavy chemos and after that could not eat. In four days they performed a third surgery where they insert a tube so that we can feed her through it. Has anyone had this done? Will it be possible to receive chemo after this? She is now 70 pounds, what should we do with her diet? I hope that someone can answer these questions, my mother is only 45. Thank you!
