Well my husband has just completed number 6 of his chemo treatments. They were hoping to get it into remission with the chemo and my husband is feeling good about that. He has developed and appetite since all this began,between the 5th and 6th treatments, and gained over 15 pounds and most of the gas he has had problems with is gone. Has anybody ever gone into remission with this type of cancer. I work at a local hospital and have heard of numerous stories where people have survived this type of cancer, but all the internet information is very down and depressing. I am praying that my husbands good feelings are true. He has another pet scan on the 30th of this month and we see the doctor on the 7th of December. I am scared to death. I don't let him know as I want him to stay positive. The pet scan between the 3rd and 4th treatment showed all the spots on the peritonium gone and the tumor shrunk. Please let me know what some of your experiences might have been.
