Hi Anusha; I also had poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma cancer of stomach, and had 23 lymphs notes that had cancer. I had mine removed alone with all 30 lymphs notes and some part of my esophagus. This was 30 Nov 2011. I had ony 2 sescens of chemo for a total of 9 days, then quit as  the chemo was killing me. I am doing fine and as of my last CT Scan, on 19 Mar 2013 I was still cancer free. I have learned what I can eat, which is most anything I want, and does no aggre with me.

That said, there is a better web site fr stomach cancer  then this, it is on Facebook. Just do a search for Stomach Cancer Warrers & Garegivers,, then ask to join. Severay dozzen people are on that page every day, and ALL are very helpfull.  Regards Robley
