A gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), a type of stomach cancer, occurs when abnormal cells develop in the tissue of the gastrointestinal tract. Stomach cancer is a relatively rare carcinoma that is often not detected until later stages. The purpose of this case report was to document the physical therapy approach for a deconditioned patient due to resection of a malignant stomach tumor and both neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy.
