When primary removed, chemosensitization studies can be performed to choose best drug. ...Read more
87 yr old dad just had partial gastrectomy for adenocarcinoma. 26 lymph nodes removed & 9 tested positive. Is there hope w/ that prognosis? What next?
N3 disease: What is the stage exactly? With 9 lymph nodes being +, his stage ranges from iib to iiic- with 5 year overall survival range from 33% to 9% with surgery alone.
