After my total hysterectomy, I had the chance to talk with an ovarian cancer survivor who was sharring her experience with me. She had her cancer long ago, went through the operation and then a reoccurance and chemio and when I talked to her was well.
I was curious and asked how she knew that cancer reoccured. She said that abdominal burnings was the symptom due to cancer cell in her gastric juices. Her oncologist tested the gastric juice to confirm.
I have heard this idea of cancer cells in the gastric juice again when I went for Braca1 and Braca2 dna testing. I was told that if I have these abdominal burnings I should be checked so cancer is rulled out. Regretfully didn't discussed about which test though. Second vizit I tried to find out what test would be recommended in case of such symptom, but I was told that testing the gastric juice was unheard of by the genetisist.
However she did know about the gastric juice and cancer cells in it that can be a reoccurance even if the blood markers does not show it yet.
Now I am asking does anyone else know or experienced these symptoms and been checked for reoccurance by having pathology for circulatory cancer cells in the gastric juices?
