Hi everyone! My name is Kristen and unfortunately my dad is having a Total Gastrectomy on Monday May 16th. I'm super nervous and scared for him and just looking for any advice, words of wisdom, diet plans etc.
Thank you in advance!

Hi @kbcutiepie, I can imagine you're nervous and scared for your dad as the date approaches for his total gastrectomy. I moved your message asking for words of wisdom and support from others to this existing discussion:

I did this so you can connect with @twocents @freeflow @azcyclist2018 @rred and others.

Cutiepie, can you share a bit more? Why is you dad having a gastrectomy? Will you be with him on the day and his main caregiver? Or are you supporting the main caregiver?
