My mother had surgery 1 1/2 yr ago after gastric cancer was detected. The whole stomach was removed. Since then she has had trouble with her diet. It seems that she can eat anything. Today is the 3rd time she has to be hospitalized for intestine obtruction.. is that pretty common? what needs to be done? Does anyone recommends a good diet? I really would like to help her and I don't know what to do since the doctor she is seing has not been able to do anything for her. She doesn't live in the US. Please share your experiences with me.
