thaks f0r ur enquery
look mam, ur mother as per ur history was suffering from tuberculous lymphadenitis and she was given ATD in the form of AKT 4...taken for 3 months only..need to take the drugs for at least 3 months and probably she had a coexistent stomach carcinoma....on repeated endoscopic biopsy it has been prooved to be adenocarcinoma of stomach..if signet ring cells are found than probably it is metastatic carcinoma producing kruckenberg's tumour mainly on overy..u have to search for that...again u have said that on repeated endoscopy they have found the small stomach which suggests the worst variety of adenocarcinoma i.e. linitis plastica.
have ur mother developed the following symptoms -
weight loss
loss of appetite
the above symptoms are also suggestive of stomach carcinoma
as per the report i think ur mom is suffering from stomach ca and that probably is surgically inoperable
u should consult with a good oncologist or gastroenterologist for better management and understanding
