A good gastroenterologist should be on your team. Seems obvious but it took us awhile to realize that, too. You need more than a surgeon and an oncologist and a chemo nurse to fight this disease. You also need, to name a few, a nutritionist, maybe an endocrinologist (diabetes risk), a primary care doc, and someone to help with psych/spiritual issues (psychiatrist, psych RN, social worker, minister etc.).

Nutritional maintainance is key to survival.
