      Thanks for doing something that is 'giving back'! I hope you're doing well!

    I was also diagnosed with mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix back in May 2012. After a hysterectomy, partial colon resection, appendectomy and six months of chemo and erbitux I was told that no cancer could be detected. I spent over a year in remission before I was then informed that the cancer has reoccurred back in April this year. I am currently back on slightly different chemo and Avastin this time and feel encouraged that I can beat this back again. Message me if you like. There are so few of us with this rare cancer. It would be good to talk to someone who is going through similar issues. Encouraging to hear that Jennifer is 12 years since her diagnosis. Yeah!

      Dr. Lowy is definitely one of the select experts in our cancer. And yes, mine was found as a tumor encompassing the ovary. Additional nodules were found on the colon and peritoneum. I was resected in several places, but have regained full normal bowel function. I had both intraperitoneal chemo (not the heated variety) and systemic chemo.

      I am interested to know if your cancer was also high grade signet cell mucinous adenocarcinoma or if not, how did it differ.

      Mine was low grade mucinous adenocarcinoma, not signet cell. However, I know a 12plus yr survivor who was treated the same as I .
