Hello,

You may want to do a search of the CSN website. To so this, enter this diagnosis in the search bar at the top of this page. If you find someone you would like to contact, you can do so through the internal CSN email function.

Take care and be well,

Dana

Hi,

I was diagnosed in mid-November 2012 when I had an appendectomy.  Now awaiting a right hemicolectomy in early February.  I've collected a number of primary research papers on the disease.

You must see an appendix cancer speciailist - you probably should have some kind of Intra Peritoneal chemo or HIPEC.  If your surgeon is not a specialist in Appendix Cancer, then delay your surgery, and get to a specialist.  I'm a success story, at almost 6 years since diagnosis with metastatic cancer.  (See my blog:  http://csn.cancer.org/node/188600 and click on my name "abrub" next to my avatar to get my basic story.)

I have stage 4 mucinous adenocarcinoma that originated in my appendix.  I had debulking surgery, HIPEC and 7 months of chemo.  All is going well and I have returned to a pretty normal level of wellness.  Like many who have gone through this process, there were a few bumps along the way but I'm willing to share anything I've experienced or learned along the way.

 

thanks
