    So our Dad wasn't feeling well for a while so today we insisted he go to the hospital to get it checked out. Worse fears confirmed. Stomach cancer. Diagnosed around 10pm tonight. Operating on him midnight. Please pray for my Dad, Wen Ching Shieh. Thanks,

    Anthony

    They removed 3/4 of his colon and doing biopsy to test if the remaining part is cancerous. He's doing well post-op and able to walk around.

    Best wishes Anthony ... ailing parents for any reason are not happy times ... hoping your fish help with a little stress relief.

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.

    DefaultMy Dad was just diagnosed with stomach cancer, operating on him now.

    My stepfather went through stomach cancer and lived on many years after.
    Glad to hear the surgery went well.
    Post op diet, he will need a highly nutritionally, dense, diet due to missing digestive tract.
    He will have trouble getting the most out of food he eats.
    Papaya enzyme (papain) pills will help digest food and live culture yogurt to keep his gut flora healthy. Go low fat and veg heavy diet.

    Regards,

    Walther

    Thanks everyone. Thank you Walter for your advice and insights. He's feeling pretty good but still unable to consume anything by mouth so staying at VGH another week.
