My husband was first diagnosed with cirrhosis in August, 2009, though he doesn't drink, and then stomach cancer cells were found when the doctor performed an abdominal tap to withdraw built-up fluid. It's been 6 1/2 months now, and he has done better since he was given a permanent drain, but the outcome is the same. I'd appreciate any input from those who have had this experience. I want to make his last days/months/years the best I can. We've been married 37 years.
