Sadly after three clear scans the cancer has returned. Had surgery & Hioec last April in Basingstoke. Everything seemed to go so well, was only in Hospital 12 days in total and made a good recovery. I had the omentum, ovaries etc, appendix removed and the peritoneal was stripped. Had a fantastic year and done loads.
Now after a Pet Scan it is showing in the peritoneal and small nodes on lungs too. In fact report summarise saying ‘widespread’
Waiting to see Oncologist as my local surgeon saying only chemo the treatment now & guess that will be palliative. I last had chemo Feb ‘17 except of course the ‘Hipec’ in April & it has been wonderful.
My question is - is it worth trying as I read that it’s near impossible to cure cancer there? Or should I just have quality of life rather than quantity? The next chemo regime would be stronger & be every week. I was told which scares me.
Is there anyone out there beat this cancer on the peritoneal please?
