Patient Comments: Stomach Cancer - Symptoms

What symptoms and signs did you experience with stomach cancer?

Comment from: Christina, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: January 24

I was in my last trimester of pregnancy and started having problems with acid reflux and not keeping food down. I was losing weight and my body was starting to shut down. My baby had to be delivered 5 weeks early so the Doctors could figure out what was going on. It took 3 endoscopy's for the cancer to be found. When my son was 14 days old I underwent surgery to have almost half of my stomach removed, my whole pyloris and part of my pancreas.
