My brother in law was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. He has a grapefruit sized tumor in his stomach and also a tumor in his small intestines. He was hospitalized for abdominal pain back in January of this year. We were shocked when he came out of the hospital without getting the blockage fixed. ( He told us that he had diverticulitis and diverticulosis). He says that he went to the ER on Saturday because he was sick and they told him there that he had cancer. I dont understand any of it to be honest. He told us about two days after telling us about him having cancer that he had a lymph node removed from his neck about a year or year and a half ago and it containted cancer. I asked him if he did chemo and he said no. He told me they removed by going down his throat as an outpatient procedure because the dr said they dont cut them out because the air will hit the node and the cancer will spread. Has anyone ever heard of having a lymph node removed via the throat and it containing cancer and not doing chemo or radiaiton. Thats been a year or so ago. I believe that he is sick because of what he tells us is going on....bleeding rectally, vomiting blood, difficulty swallowing, and he said when he is trying to have a bowel movement he can feel something twisting inside. Yesterday he said he ate dinner then threw up and it stunk so bad that everyone had to go outside for a bit because of the smell. I am frightened for him.
