My Nan's name was Bonnie :) I wish you well and lots of "good" Bonnie.

"The name Bonnie has two meanings:

1. It is derived from the Scottish word "bonnie" meaning "pretty, attractive". The Scottish word is derived from French "bon, bonne" meaning "good".

wow Bonnie, it sounds like a rough road ahead! I had no idea they could build a stomach out of intestines :unsure:

Best healing thoughts and prayers to you, and wishes for a speedy recovery. {{{hugs}}}

and if I were you, I'd think about suing the doctors that told you it's all in your head. Had they taken you seriously, it's possible there would have been less damage and you may not have had to have your entire stomach removed. :blink: At the very least, send them a copy of your dx, and tell them to be more diligent in future so the same doesn't happen to someone else :(

Wonderful news that it's in the early stages and there is treatment for you. You advocated for yourself and got answers quickly.

You can beat this. Cancer is treatable these days.

Do everything you can to support yourself nutritionally too. I started juicing lots of green veggies and then adding apples, carrots and oranges to flavor it up. It is helping me a lot.

Hang in there and keep posting when you need us.

Just a reminder- Juice your greens yourself...the greendrinks in the stores(even the healthy ones) have gluten in them...their one of the few health drinks that do!

Hang in there! :D(naked juice, green machine,,ect.,ect.)
