Pathology Report

The pathology report is back. They found a single focus of signet ring cell carcinoma (adenocarcinoma). They also found a gastrointestinal stromal tumor. Twenty-two lymph nodes were biopsied and all were negative. Histology at the esophagus was squamous (teaching moment) which means Dr. Roses removed all of my stomach so no follow up treatment is necessary. Plan is to let the suture in my j tube dissolve over the next 2 weeks. At that time the doctor should be able to pull it out.
