    If so, how have you treated it? Chemo did not work for us and we have had 3 colon resections with 1 using HIPEC

      I had IntraPeritoneal (IP) chemo at Memorial Sloan Kettering - not the heated kind. A version of 5FU was used. First I had very careful cytoreductive surgery to remove all visible cancer. That was followed within 24 hours by my first of several cycles of IP FUDR.

      Thank you very much. I just want to confirm that your cancer has not come back.
