My husband is 38 and just diagnosed with stomach cancer. It s stage IV and has gone to his liver. They say the cancer is about 1/3 of his stomach, where it meets the esophagus. All of the doctors are doom and gloom telling him he will not survive. Because of this he feels very depressed and seems done with life. I still feel there must be hope out there. They say they cannot operate. He is going to start his first round of chemo tomorrow. I feel like someone has to be able to do something. Will anyone do surgery? Is it really not possible? Is the outcome really unbeatable like they all say? We have a 3 and 1/2 year old daughter and I just can't bear to see her without a father.
He still is able to eat some foods. At this point anything I tell him to try he really doesn't want to hear. Any advice on nutrition?
