    Can someone please tell me the best treatment options for stomach cancer in stage 4? My uncle is having stomach cancer and the stage is 4. He is 63 years old. The doctors from 2 hospitals have prescribed the pacliwel and carboplatin. Are these good treatments options? Also how many chemo treatments are needed in stage 4 stomach cancer?
    Appreciate your help.

    Treatments for pancreatic cancer and for stomach cancer are not the same. I'll move your question to the stomach forum. Hopefully, someone will answer your question.
