Frequently Asked Questions

 


Do you know of any research, findings, suggestions, specific diets, etc. for stomach cancer patients that have had a gastrectomy and who are consequentially having symptoms of dumping syndrome?

Thanks for writing and asking your very good question. I am referring you to the following web site, which has very good accurate information specifically geared to complications following a gastrectomy for stomach cancer https://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/internet/digestive-health/nutritionarticles/radiganarticle.pdf.

In addition, I strongly recommend an appointment with the Registered Dietitian (RD) at your cancer center who can assess your nutritional status, nutritional requirements, devise a nutrition plan to meet your goals, monitor your responses and modify it as necessary to help you achieve optimal health. Most importantly, the RD will have access to your medical records and other medical team members to obtain as much information a possible to design a nutritional plan that meets all of your individual and unique medical needs.
