Progressing toward stomach cancer (irritation to metaplasia, metapl to cancer), is it possible to paradoxically feel better than before at any stage?

In brief: Cancerphobia

Jimmy -- These questions have been answered.
How you feel has little to do with the anatomic changes in your mucosa, and is likely to vary for no obvious reason. You've been given a diagnosis with a small possibility of turning into malignancy, but you'll hopefully be kept under proper surveillance and a really bad outcome is very unlikely. It's an emotional time for you and we can help. Cheers.
