Hi Panagosx, Yes you can live a long and full life without a stomach. You just have to adjust to how to eat and what not to eat. But to answer your question, I have never heard of a stomach replacement. I had my entire stomach removed in Nov of 2011 and I am here doing fine as of now, some 14 months later. Hope this gives you some help
