    Not sure why you would have to remove the "entire stomach" as quoted in the article but I bet she is going to be feeling a lot better soon.

    "surgeries of this nature require the removal of entire stomach of the sick horse after it has been sedated"

    Ok maybe I'm uneducated in this area, do you possibly think this statement is incomplete or doesn't translate well, to mean that the stomach is removed in order to get it out of the way to remove the tumor, and then stomach is replaced? Is it possible for a horse to live any kind of normal life without a stomach? I am aware that humans can, stomach cancer patients for example.

    That's how I took it - have to take the stomach outside the horse to get to the offending tumor. I cannot imagine the management of a horse without a stomach

    FWIW - a friend of a friend had a disease (whose name I will never remember) which caused most of her digestive tract to become paralyzed (oh, I think it was a rare side effect of a....back surgery? something like that). She was on special feeding tubes for a year or more, and ended up with a multi-organ transplant, including stomach, esophagus I think, and a few more parts. Absolutely amazing.

    It was just bad reporting. They move the intestines out of the way to access the uterus. I once had a ridgling that they had to take his entire intestines out to locate the missing testicle which ended up being up by his kidney. The recovery was very similiar to a colic surgery.
