HI
MY BROTHER (39YRS) IS SUFFERING FROM STOMACH CANCER, HE WAS OPERATED (REMOVAL OF ENTIRE STOMACH) ON 28TH APRIL 2007, HAD STOMACH PAIN AND VOMITTING SINCE JAN 2007 AND WAS DIAGNOISED IN MARCH. AFTER THE OPERATION HE HAS HAD 3 CHEMOTHERAPHY , NOW HE IS HOSPITALISED AND IS ON DRIPS, HIS INTESTINES HAVE CLAMPED AND THE PASSAGE HAS NARROWED THERE BY MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR FOOD/LIQUID TO PASS, NO SOONER HE HAS A SIP OF LIQUID HE GETS SEVERE STOMACH PAIN AND VOMITTING, HE HAS BECOME VERY PALE AND WEAK.

DOES ANYONE KNOW THE SURVIVAL RATE OF STOMACH CANCER AFTER REMOVAL OF THE ENTIRE STOMACH.
DOCTORS SAY THE ONLY OTHER OPTION IS TO INSERT A FOOD PIPE EXTERNALLY DIRECTLY INTO HIS INTESTINES (SINCE HE DOES NOT HAVE A STOMACH ) SO THAT HE GETS SOME NUTRITION AND HEALTH.

SOMEONE PLEASE REPLY ABOUT AND KNOW ABOUTS OR ANY INFORMATION HOW TO HELP HIM OUT.
HIS WIFE (37 YRS ) WAS OPERATED FOR BRAIN TUMOR IN SEPT 2006 , THEY HAVE A SMALL DAUGHTER WHO WILL SOON BE 7YRS.

PLEASE SOMEONE REPLY.

I can only offer you information on some stomach cancer. I've known two people (older men) that have had to have a part of their stomach removed and reconstructed due to stomach cancer.
It took them both forever (6-12mos) to recuperate and though they can both finally eat normal food now only it seems they eat very little.
One was in the hospital almost 2 wks the other about 3 mos. It is a very long, difficult recovery process.
I know this isn't quite the same but it is similiar and thought this may be of some help.

Hi
thanks for the info.
however in this case his entire stomach has been removed, one loose end of the intestine is joined to his gullet/food pipe, so that the food he eats goes into the intestines. NOw the problem is the intestines have all cramped and jumbled up inside causing passage blockage so the food/liquid is not able to pass down. he is vomitting and having sever pain in the stomach, he was operated in april 28 and is on and off hospital
