BBC NEWS: Walsall Sibling’s Stomach’s Removed Over Cancer Risk

Stomach cancer is what I have. And I am about 29 months into my palliative care only diagnosis. Having your stomach removed and still being able to eat is a new one on me.

From the genetic standpoint of progeny, having your stomach removed before diagnosis seems like “overkill” to me. Perhaps a prior diagnosis of H. Pylori could prompt stomach removal as a precaution.

Genetics is a “crap shoot” involving both parents that goes on for generations. Where did my stomach cancer come from? Was it from my father’s biological father, who was a “player”? Did my brother have stomach cancer? I will never know.
