      PS - as @GregP_WN's link is incomplete, try putting "HIPEC" into the WhatNext search window. HIPEC is always done with cytoreductive surgery, so that will bring up all mentions of it. (And since cytoreductive surgery is also called "debulking" you are not limiting yourself.)

      Thanks for the feedback! I’m having it done in Austin,Tx. The surgeon trained at MD Anderson and has done about 80 procedures. She’s the only one that does them in Central Texas. Really like her, & sh comes highly recommend.

      Good luck to you! I don't know much about this procedure but my docs are all MD Anderson and my surgeon was brilliant. She saved my life. I hope the surgery helps you a lot!
