Managing Symptoms & Side Effects

Our specially trained staff is available to help you manage side effects of stomach cancer treatment such as pain and nausea. For example, we recommend that you eat smaller, more frequent meals following surgery. Because the stomach plays an important role in vitamin absorption, we may also prescribe dietary vitamin supplements.

Our patients continue to see their doctor regularly for follow-up examinations and tests once treatment is over. People who experience any new symptoms should contact their doctor right away.
