He is done with his chemo and he said he is feeling the best he has felt in a very long time. I hope it continues this way!!! Hope everyone is doing well! :)

    I'm not sure when you last spoke to my dad (by the way, he goes on and on about how much you have helped him, thank you!). He is currently in surgery (right now!) getting HIPEC. He had a CT Scan last week and the Dr said he didn't see anything so hopefully all goes well!!

    It's been quite a while since I've been on here. Things have been crazy. Anyway...Dad got a scan and the results came back. The Dr said he didn't see ANYTHING on the scan. Obviously this was amazing news. But he also said it was just a CT scan so they would have to find out more when he goes to get HIPEC. And as I am typing this, he is currently in surgery getting the HIPEC. He went in at 6:00am. I hope all goes well. I will let you know as soon as I know anything!

      Good news on the scan, and good luck on the surgery, I hope the results are as good as the scan.

    My dad finally got a call.. The scan looked decent...its not on his liver. but it is on his small bowel. He is eligible for HIPEC. Hopefully he can have his mediport put in, do the HIPEC at the end of the month and then do regular chemo.

      They removed seeding on my small bowel as well - I'm doing great 6 yrs since dx! Wishing your dad the same success!

    My dad went to Roswell last week. They said he needed another scan. If the cancer is in his liver, he cannot do the HIPEC but he can do regular chemo. If it's not in his liver, he can do the HIPEC. The Dr. said his 5-year survival rate is 1-2% with regular chemo and 25-35% with HIPEC. He went in for his scan Friday. Hopefully we will get the results today. It's been a waiting game for the past 2 months and it's getting frustrating.
