In brief: Yes but

You will need life long supplement of vitamin b 12 injected or sublingual and possibly iron supplement too.
They both have to be monitored.

In brief: Absolutely

Dietary changes and vitamin/mineral supplementation are needed, and a visit with a dietician familiar with gastrectomy is an important part of coping with gastrectomy (surgical removal of stomach).
