Hello @arreyprotus Sounds like you and your mother have a difficult time ahead. Do you have family near who can be your support system?
You said that the surgery cannot be done until your mother is at an appropriate size and weight. This is very understandable because surgery is so hard on the body. Your mom needs to be physically strong to undergo surgery. The perikabivin given by vein will help your mother get stronger. Will she need to remain in the hospital for this treatment?

Here is a link to some information on treatment of stomach cancer by Mayo Clinic. I hope you will find it helpful.
