Struggling with how I am progressing

My journey starts with trouble swallowing in March/April 2017. After two endoscopes and gallbladder surgery, I was diagnosed July 2017 with stomach cancer and had a total gastrectomy, removal of spleen and 13 lymph node tissue. I had a mass that was 12X7cm. It was all involved and all 13 nodes were involved.  It was considered stage 3.

MY MOTHER CAN´T EAT. Please if you have so info that can help.


Hello, my mother has gastric cancer, metastasis and in the NY Hospital, they told us yesterday that there is nothing else to do for her. No more treatment. She´s only 48. 
The thing is that she has EXCESS OF SALIVATION that doesn't allow her to eat or even sleep because she needs to spit very often. Can you help me with any recommendation on what to do to STOP SALIVATION? Thanks.

Bone metastasis help

My mother got diagnosed with somatch cancer with bone metastisis about a year ago, and has gotten worse and worse. She is on her last chemo round now, and the oncologist says we are out of options at that point.

 

Do you know of how I can approach researching new or experimental treatments available internationally?

Exterior cancer

My 75 yo father has an unknown primary cancer diagnosis. Doctors are under the impression that it is stomach cancer and it is on the exterior portion of the stomach. His endo biopsy did not pick any thing up. He has bone mets. Nothing on scans for stomach cancer.

I would like to know is there any other way to diagnose/prevent this earlier in myself? I have several family members who passed from stomach cancer and was only caught at late stages. My dad went to his dr quarterly for a long time but was diagnosed pretty late.

Appendiceal cancer, limited ability to eat/drink. Compressing supplements.

Hi,

My first time posting. I'm not sure exactly where my post should go. I have appendiceal cancer. (Endoscopy and colonoscopy tend to show cancer is involved in both areas of my abdominal areas).

 

For almost a year my specific medical issue could not be determined. I was told, based on blood work, anemia and SED test irregularity results. That my problem was most likely either Rheumatoid arthritis or cancer.

Fiancé recently diagnosed Stage IV stomach cancer

My fiancé is a 33 year old male with no underlying health issues. Last month he was admitted to the hospital after complaining of abdominal pain and bloating. Scope indicated 2 tumors and 1 in the process of forming. The big one is located in the lower part of his stomach and the other is a rectal mass in the distal colon. Biopsy confirmed Stage IV Adenocarcinoma and the fluid retention was full of mestatic cells.They started him on a treatment of FOLFOX (5-FU, Leucovorin & Oxaliplatin) 4 weeks ago. He has had a lot of trouble with nausea and reflux, he vomits bile frequently.
