My dad who is 68 yrs old was diagnosed with Stage III stomach cancer roughly 3 weeks ago and had ~50% of his stomach removed over a week ago. He has a feeding tube (j tube) and it seems to leak a lot and cause him some discomfort. It is quite red and slightly swollen around the sutures.
Is this normal? Also, what is the time frame between surgery and chemotherapy or radiation therapy?
Thank you so much for reading and potential comments.
