My name is Tom I am 38 years old, I was diagnosed with Gastric Adenocarcinoma in November of 2009. The cancer is mostly in the top portion of my stomach but has also invaded part of my esophagus. Since my diagnosis I have gone through 3 rounds of Chemo treatments and the doctors have given me a surgery date of April 8th.
The plan for surgery is to remove my entire stomach and part of my esophagus. Worst case would be to remove my entire esophagus and stomach.
Does anyone have any advice for preparing for surgery? Should I change my eating habits now?
