I have severe Barrettes, of the esophagus and stomach I have gone by ambulance several times, after dry heaves, because I cannot vomit (had a fundoplication) 3 years ago. It does suffocate me when this happens. I have to take medication of Phenergan, and a Phenergan suppository and it still does not stop.

My experience with stomach cancer was very painful. Actually, my father had it and unfortunately he was not a survivor from it. It took his life. It happened so fast, but I'm just writing to let people with stomach cancer lift there heads and rejoice because life is tooo short. Live your life, love your life and always have faith

I had stage 3 stomach cancer. I had 80 percent of my stomach removed and 90 days of continuous chemo (before and after surgery). I'm doing great now. I lost about 50 pounds. I cannot live without my PH balance tablets which helps me digest food.
