My cousin did 6 months of chemo for stage 4 very rare and aggressive stomach cancer. Her scans showed that it still spread to her abdomen they said a bunch tiny tumors that originally they were going to do a surgery where they put chemo directly to her stomach after her initial 6 months of chemo but she couldn’t have the surgery since they found cancer in her pelvic bone. So she is getting more chemo to keep the cancer at bay. Does this mean the cancer will still spread but the chemo will just slow it down? She isn’t talking to much to family or friends. Only her close family and husbands friends. So I can only go by what her sister tells me and FB pics where she looks happy and healthy. Besides the short hair she doesn’t look sick. But in all seriousness if the cancer is spreading even on chemo, how much longer does she have? It’s so hard to comprehend all of this.
