Stomach problem from Singapore — less than 3 months to live
Dear Dr Teo,
My mother, aged 68, has been diagnosed with linitus plastica. It is concentrated on her stomach and has spread to the surrounding areas but has not infected the other organs. She was supposed to undergo surgery to remove the stomach but once the doctor found that it had spread, he couldn’t operate. The prognosis given I that she has less than 3 months to live. She is also unable to eat, and can only take in nourishment intravenously.
Is there any way we can come down to for a consultation? We are from Singapore.
Hope to hear from you soon.
