    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Stomach Cancer
    spongebob1951 posted:
    I was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer in 12/2009 and went on to have 3/4 of my stomach and 18 inches of intestines removed. I followed up with chemotherapy and radiation. Since that time I have had no signs of any cancer. However, I'm still worried that it may come back again. Not many survivors are found with my type of cancer and I'm looking for a support group.

    I'm happy to hear that the cancer seems to be gone! Here is a link to the National Cancer Society website to help you find local support groups.

    Please check with your doctor's office and treatment center as well for suggestions.

    Reaching out can be an extremely positive experience and help lessen your fears about the future!
