Dear CSN members,
My Father was suffering from duodonal ulcer which has blocked the duodonel. Hence he underwent stomach-intestine bypass surgery on 22 Feb 2011. Durng the surgery doctors suspected a part of stomach as malignant. Hence they picked up a piece from there and sent it for biopsy. Unfortunately the biopsy report came out to be positive stating adeno carcinoma.
My Dad again underwent another surgery for the same from the onto surgeon on 22 March 2011.
Before this surgery we have performed abdomen MRI and Chest CT Scan which says liver, lungs kidney etc are all fine.
During this surgery [22 March 2011] doctors has performed partial gastrectomy as well as removed all the lymph nodes of the region and sent it biopsy.
This biosys report says T4 and out of 20 lymph nodes 5 are infective so it is T4N2 which is as per pathology Stage 4. At the end of report it has been mentioned as Microscopic extent of tumour - Tumour penetrates to surface of visceral perituneum (serosa) and directly invades adjacent structures- part of pancreas seen in sections.
Obviously chemotherapy will start in due course of time[After 4 weeks of surgery].
Can anyone please let me know about the life apan ? Also anything he should take as part of diet which can prevent or stop the spread of cancer.
Is any cure anywhere available ?
Please assist me as soon as possible.
