Roller Coaster Ride

DaughterOfCancer posted:
My Mom had B-Cell Lymphoma in nodes in her neck in 2004-2005.

She was cancer free until diagnosed with the same cancer in her stomach on Nov. 22, 2011. This time the battle has been a fast roller coaster ride of hospital stays ranging from a week to 17 days,every other week. Each time she spends time in the ICU due to vomiting blood and having two procedures done to stop the bleeding.
At diagnosis she was told she had an 80% survival rate. In Dec. her doctor told her the tumor wasn't growing and he was happy with the way things were going. Two weeks later she was in ICU and we were told chemo wasn't working, the tumor was growing and there was nothing more that could be done.
We transported her home to the local hospital where she was placed on Hospice. We were told she would not survive the ride. Two days later she was awake, up and telling everyone she is going to beat this. She is tough and has too much to do.
Her cancer Dr was surprised to get the phone call from the local Dr saying she wanted to see him.
It has been two weeks since that ambulance ride. Mom is now home, kicked off of Hospice.
Her cancer Dr told her that if she gains weight he will send her to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN to have her entire stomach removed.

Does anyone have any experience with ... Lymphoma in Stomach? Stomach removal? Life after stomach removal? Mayo Clinic?
