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.
Hey there freeflow,
Sorry to see you've not had a response yet when you're going through such a tough time.
I just wanted to point you towards the neuroendocrine group where you are more likely to get answers to your questions.
I hope you're doing as well as you can be, and that you find the answers you need.
Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today. - Thich Nhat Hanh
