hi all, i was diagnosed in sept 08 with gastric cancer. i had my stomach removed along with lymphs. it was caught early, and i had 9 months of chemo and radiation. i have a clean bill of health. but i still have to go for blood work once a month which i find emotionally draining. it's a cycle that i can't seem to handle. i'm thankful to god to be alive, and i dont want to seem ungrateful, but i'm looking for another way to maintain my health aside from doctors visits.
