Total Gastrectomy: What can I expect?

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!

@kbcutiepie, I was in the same role with my mom and dad when he had colorectal cancer surgery. I hope you saw the great caregiving suggestions that @nrocpop shared about taking notes and using your phone to take pictures of important information.

When will your dad have surgery? Are you able to be there with your mom?
