My father is 56 years old. We recently found that he has been suffering with Stage 2 stomach cancer (T2N0). Initial endoscopy and biopsy was done in Apr 2013. After we have identfied stomach cancer in April, Doctor gave him 2 cycles of chemotheraphy in last two months. At today's complete body pet scan results came as negative for cancer. Though PET scan results are negative, our oncologist says that cancer cells will reappear in few months and wanted to remove stomuch antrum part. We are not understanding why doctor still want to go by surgery even though there is no active cancer in his stomach. can someone please help us in this. Thanks!
