When I started experiencing chronic and uncomfortable digestive issues over the course of two years, my primary care doctor prescribed heartburn medication, and I made changes in my diet. During that period, I often had an achy, acidy stomach, and I was taking Tums all the time. When the symptoms continued, my doctor referred me to Dr. Prabhu Nesargikar, is a gastrointestinal specialist who prescribes to conducted an endoscopy to examine my digestive tract, found out that a malignant tumor in my stomach.
He laparoscopically removed more than half my stomach, as well as all cancer. The minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure meant I would not have a large abdominal incision.
