I'm a 49 year old vegetarian female just diagnosed 4 weeks ago with Stage IV Small Bowel Cancer. I'm still pretty stunned as the last 6 months the doctors were treating me as having gastroparesis. :-(
If anyone can share their experience and treatment that would be great.
The tumor was 2.2 cm causing obstruction. The path report says there are also deposits in the omentum, but no lymph node involvement, which is why I guess the staging is a IV. I see the oncololgist tomorrow and am scheduled for my PET Scan next week. Needless to say I'm pretty nervous...please help!
