    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I am scarred to death and don't know where to turn. I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow. They say they caught it early enough that surgery should fix it. Stomach Cancer is so rare, I want someone that has had it to talk to. I want a surgeon that knows what he is doing. Where can I find a surgeon experienced in this kind of thing?

    Celebration

    The surgeon said that the first biopsy showed cancer, the second one did not. PET scan showed nothing, so they aren't even sure it is cancer! I will have another endo- scopy in three months and another biopsy. He said they will keep a close watch on this, but for now things look good! Maybe a mistake was made, maybe prayers were answered. Thanks everyone for all your input and God Bless all of you! I will keep you in my prayers and keep you updated on my statis.
