Hi CJJ. My father has a 1.5 cm Gastrointestinal Stromal tumor located in his stomach. The doctors want him to have a total gastrectomy. This is a very scary option and one we are reluctant to take. As yet, the tumor has not spread and is classfied as low risk. He is taking flaxseed oil and cottage cheese along with Essiac tea and IP6. I was wondering what your advice would be to someone in my father's situation given that you have been fighting the same condition for much longer. I would also like you to clarify whether or not the immune system can be used to fight a GIST. Your help would be much appreciated.
