Stomach cancer remission

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach cancer remission


Rmarie - When I had my debulking surgery, it was a total hysterectomy. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> had spread to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> lining and lymph nodes, but my onc/gyn told me he removed EVERYTHING to the mm. Why, if this is ovarian cancer, would it rear its ugly head again when you have removed all female organs? I guess I just don't understand when people say they had a 2nd or a 3rd debulking surgery. I guess this is to say that there are tumors resurfacing else where in the body? This disease is HORRIBLE!!!!

I had only been in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>remission</span> 6 months when I was told it was back again. Second CA125 came back yesterday and it is up from 8.5 to 40 and now 61. Has anyone gone through this short of a remission and lived much longer. I am still weak and chemobrained from my last round. I was very upbeat and positive through my first round but I am still so tired I don't know how well my body will take this. What's the best way to prepare for a second round so soon? Dr. will be using Gemzar/Carbo.
Can a person with Lupus really go into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>remission</span>? After 22 years of having SLE my doctor told me last week that I am in remission.

My sister was diagnosed with ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> stage 3C in July last year. She had a full hysterectomy and chemo for 6 months and came home to Fiji well. Two weeks ago she had another check and her tumour markers are very high and she has retained fluid in her stomach which the doctor is wary of draining due to infection, bleeding etc. I am seeking a second opinion as there must be treatment that can stall this.
Hi, My mother is 72 years old and has stage IV Inflammatory Breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. Her PET Scan showed it in the hip bones, between the lungs, and a little on the liver. She has recently been hospitalized with pneumonia, and now has very distended stomach (looks like she is having triplets!) Her legs are swollen also. I am living in Texas and my Mum is in Ireland, so I am trying to figure out when is a good time for me to go home. How does this disease progress?
About five years later I had developed ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. It was attached to my bladder,intestines,also my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> wall.Surgery was done, and all cancer was removed. Dr. put me on a cemo "diet" of Etoposide,Bleomycin & Cisplatin. That is over with for now. I have been told this is a re-accuring cancer. How soon on average does this cancer return? I am 59 yrs old.
Unfortunately, there are many types of epithelial ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> in terms of how the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> behaves. These cancers may all look the same under the microscope - example: a grade 3 serous adenocarcinoma. But some are easy to remove surgically. Some melt away with chemotherapy. Others go into remission but recur within a year, others go into remission and do not recurs until 2 to 5 years later. Finally others never stop growing no matter what w try.
My father has just get a diagnostic of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>..Right now he is at the hospital waiting for a surgery, but the doctor said maybe his cancer cannot be removed by surgery, then does that mean he is condamned? Or chemotherapy can still cure him? Im really scared.

I eventually went into full <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>remission</span> only to be rediagnosed in 2010 with completely unrelated rectal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> id just turned 30 and I do not have the hereditory kind. Im happy to answer anything but im not here to scare monger most of you especially the teenagers will not have cancer I was just very unlucky however I am proof it can happen......'s the deal...I'm 20 years old and I think I have colon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. Now before you roll your eyes and immediately start throwing statistics at me, hear me out. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when I was 15 years old. I have been on Remicade for about four years and recently the effects seem to be diminishing.So, I went in for a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. They found three small polyps in my cecum (1-2mm) and one mid-sized polyp in my mid ascending colon (6-8mm).
cancer went into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>remission</span> in April of 2001 and to date I'm still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> free. Another web site that is good for ovarian cancer info is NOCO National Ovarian cancer Organization. there are many great forums that is provided by searching the web but there is nothing like folks right in your own area.

Another thought came to my mind afterwards. She died of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> with liver mets. They did not know where the primary was. She was diagnosed and gone in 10 days. When she was in her late 30's she had and hysterectomy and an oopherectomy for possible ovarian cancer. They findings at that time were negative. The doc did leave her a piece of one ovary so she would not go through surgical menopause. could this have been ovarian cancer now that spread to her liver?

Hi, I'm writing on behalf of my Mom. She was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian cancer on April 18, 2006, with metastasis to the diaphragm and lining of her right lung. She completed 6 rounds of Carbo/Taxol and her CA-125 levels were low enough for her to be in so-called "remission". Her cancer returned 4 months later. She has been on chemotherapy since. She's had allergic reactions to a certain chemo (not exactly sure which one).
My mom has been healthy other than carrying extra weight around her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> and a snoring issues which is probably due to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. I'm really worried, my mom is one of the strongest people I know, having lost both her mother and brother to colon cancer as well as losing her father and sister too young, who were both about her age at the time. I'm leaving for college in about three weeks but I want to be there for my mom during her treatment.
I've been through this before with my grandmother who died of breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>, grandfather died of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> and my mother who has had breast and cervical. She's been in remission for 20 years so have experienced both sides of the coin. I've just read over what I've just said and am sorry for being so morbid. I know that at the moment she seems to be positive and as long as we can keep it like that the better.
About a year ago the cancer surfaced again, this time as liver <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> with spots detected in his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> and lungs as well. We have known for some time that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> is terminal. My dad has been on chemo. until recently, in hopes of extending his life. Last week he was feeling particularly weak and went to his doctor. His doctor detected jaundice and further tests revealed that the cancer has progressed throughout his liver and lungs. He has begun to retain water and is sleeping more.
I was told I was in clinical remission, 4 weeks later I was told that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> was back and that there was no cure for this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. So they put me on Doxil so this would at least let me live for maybe 7 years. Now they tell mw that the cancer has spread from 2 tumors to 4. There is 2 at the end of the scar that are 10 & 11 cm. 1 in the tissue in my stomach 12 cm and there is 1 that has grown to the inside of my liver that is 15 cm.
The Natural Way. I am not in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>remission</span> and I opted not to take my last Chemo treatment because it had pulled me down so bad, my platletts were only 40,000. I was so tired and week. My CA125 was 11. I am on my second week of all Natural vitamins, supplements and diet. That is why I am trying to find the Medicine Man Tea. So far, I feel good, I can usually tell when the cancer is growing because my stomach will become larger and I will have a little pain down low.
