Diagnosed with Linitis plastica in April now i'am CANCER FREE

I was having problems eating after having surgery last November. I could not hardly eat anything and i would get sick. I told the surgeon about this and he said that it was normal after the surgery and it would last about a month or so. The surgeon gave me some nausea medicine. Well after a few months of losing 36 punds and still not being able to eat I went to my family doctor who gave me more medicine and referred me to a stomach doctor. The stomach doctor gave me more medicine and told me and my wife that he could run a scope into my stomach and take a look if I wanted.

20 year old girl with stage IV stomach cancer

my 20 year old sister got diagnosed with stomach cancer after several months of complaining from stomach pains, nausea and heartburn and getting full too quickly. she got very bad stomach pain which led to her getting hospitalised after weeks of her not being able to eat and doctors testing when she eventually got diagnosed with stomach cancer. We decided to start her chemo straight away and she didnt HAVE too many side effects at the begining but with time it got worse. she had unbearable stomach pain which led to her getting hospitalised again.

Lost and confused

I just had a total gastrectomy about a month ago.   I was discharged without much follow up at all, other than the appointment to remove my staples.  I haven't met with a dietician or a nutritionist and I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing.  The doc did say to eat 6 to 8 small meals a day.  A nutritionist in the hospital threw me a couple sheets of paper before discharge, but they are not very helpful.   I don't know portion size, though yesterday I DID manage to get a decent information sheet emailed to me from a nutritionist at UT so I think I'm on the right track..

Does Chinese medicine interfere with chemotherapy?

Hello,

 

My mom has stomach cancer and she is doing chemo every 2 weeks. I bought her some products from a Chinese store to help her with the side effects. There are supposed to be natural. Does anyone know if they could interfere with chemo? 

One is called Naturin2 and is supposed to rejuvenate after chemo. There are some bottles that she is drinking before eating. And she also has some tablets for pain, I don't remember the name, but she said she feels better after taking them.

Thank you

Dumping Syndrome

65 days Post op I've lost 41 lbs. still struggling with Dumping. Seems like all foods cause dumping to some degree, mild to really bad. I've discovered that if I lay down immediately after eating that pretty much solves the problem. But to get my necessary protein and calories it's tough. Stop drinking 30 minutes before eating, then take 30 minutes to eat, wait another 30 minutes to drink again, wait for food to settle. All the while laying down after each meal, I'm running out of hours. Trying to get some physical activity but I tire quickly.

Bringing mom home

Hi All,

My mom was diagnosed with stomach cancer in March and is not given the option for stomach removal or chemo. They gave her a J tube, and when they did, they said that it looked like the insides of her abdomen were covered in sand. After being stabilized from her J tube surgery, they highly recommended that she transition to Hospice until they could get her meds in order. Hospice has aggreed to a date mid- next week to allow us to bring her home for care, but she has started complaining about more pain and pressure in her abdomen, which they say is a sign of progression.
