My husband has stage II stomach cancer, they immediately took out 3/4 of his stomach, that had the tumor. The next biopsy showed they missed some, microscopic pieces running along the blood vessels on his colon. They wanted to start treatment right away but his feeding tube went bad and he had emergency surgery 2 days before Christmas, due to septic shock. He first had 4 rounds of chemo over 2 months, then chemo and radiation for 5 weeks, now he has to return to another regimen of chemo for 2 months. He is 52 and the Doctors have given him a 51% chance of being alive in 3 years. He weighed 256lbs. and now weighs 169 lbs. I have read that his chances drop to 26% at 5 years, I am really scared. Can anyone help me?
