I will soon be facing the decision about whether to have surgery or to try a alternative treatments such as diet to control or rid my body of stage 2 stomach cancer. Has anyone gone this route?

I'm sorry to hear of your situation. I too am a stage II stomach cancer person. I urge you to go to the following web site for information on stomach cancer www.debbiesdream.org. The founder is a stage IV stomach cancer survivor and her story and efforts to offer help and information to other stomach cancer survivors is inspirational. 

With regard to surgery vs. diet you really need to seek multiple physican opinions on what's best for you. I elected to have surgery as everything I have read led me to believe surgery gave me the best chance of long term survival. 

Good luck to you.
