Total Gastrectomy: What can I expect?
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:
– Total Gastrectomy: What can I expect? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/total-gastrectomy/
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?

Hi Colleen! My dad is having the surgery because he has stomach cancer. He went through Chemo and as of right now he is cancer free 🙂 but the Doctor is concerned that it will come back and if it does, it could spread and we obviously dont want that! I'm hopeful the hospital will allow both me and my mother to be with him. My mother will be the main caregiver, but i'll be right there with her for anything that they need!
