I was diagnosed with stage three stomach cancer in May of 2010. I have successfully completed treatment based on the Magic Trials. This involved nine weeks of chemo, a total gastrectomy, and a final nine week round of chemo. Treatment and recovery were challenging, to say the least, but I am through it now. I appear to be cured.
I maintained a blog through the entire process. People facing this diagnosis might find it helpful to read the blog to get a sense of what it was like to go through treatment. I have reformatted the blog so it starts with the beginning diagnosis and continues through the final round of chemo. I made it a point of maintaining a positive attitude through the whole thing, so the blog isn't particularly depressing.
