I am my wife's carer, she suffers from metal health and now Neuroendocrine tumours and needs a total Gastrectomy.
She is naturally very scared but wants the operation, but know second guessing the decision.
I support the operation and her decision, but i like opinions, if possible.
It is a grade one net in the stomach and in some glands next to the stomach, so is it the right decision to remove the stomach straight away or should one wait.Can they just go away or do they just get worse?
I do not want a magic answer just an opinion please, perhaps based on experience.
