Helen, the crucial question is whether the cancer was removed completely. If they were able to remove the whole cancer, the person should be able to have a normal life in spite of the fact that the stomach was removed. The problem is that I don’t have all the details and can therefore not make any comments or estimates about the patient. The best would be to direct these questions to the treating doctor. Good luck.
