I was diagnosed with Diffuse Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma in Sept. 2001. Had surgery in Oct. 2001 and intraperitoneal chemotherapy. The cancer came back. Had surgery again Sept. 2002 and now in intravenous chemotherapy. I wonder if anyone else out there has a similar situation.

I notice your post date was 4/20/03...how are you doing now? I know what Mesothelioma is, but I'm not sure about the Diffuse Peritoneal part. Let me know, I care.

I was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma on january 31 1990. Had 3 operations and chemo. I was re diagnosed on Nov 11 of 2002 and more surgery. I am once again feeling great but it is on my mind every day. I hope that all is well with you. Please respond
