I am a lady of 63 years old. I had a total gastrectomy in July 2017 due to adenocarcinoma of stomach, diagnosed Stage 2B cancer due to pervasiveness in one of the 14 nodes removed. I also had 6 sessions of EOX Chemo and struggled with multiple side effects until December last.
I had a pet scan in Jan 2018 which revealed no sign of cancer but hernia at bellybutton.
There is an inward growth at the belly button. Doctor says I cannot have a surgery so soon and I have to live with it. I take a B12 injection once a month and 1 multi-vit and 1 calcium per day only. The hernia is uncomfortable and painful when I have eaten slightly more. Otherwise I am doing fine
I shall be grateful for any advice how to cope with such hernia or any solution.
