    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.

    Hello fellow Arkansan!
    I am from Sheridan and was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. I was wondering
    where you go for treatment and do you know a surgeon that specializes in cancer? I am
    seeing a surgeon in Little Rock tomorrow that was recommended by my Gastrologist, but
    it scares me that since stomach cancer is such a rare thing, that he might not know what
    he is doing! Since there are no Cancer treatment centers in Ark., how do you know your
    geting the best treatment?

    Oh No (Diagnosed): 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?
