    Just Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had an Endoscopy for swallowing issues when a tumor was discovered in my stomach. Ultrasound and CT Scan followed And diagnosis shows a size of 44mm. I was sent to a surgeon that wants to do open surgery with a wedge cut. I went for a second opinion and chemotherapy is recommended first then surgery. I am currently waiting for a response from a third cancer treatment facility more familiar with GIST treatments, for one more opinion.
