I'm 58 and was just diagnosed with Paritneal cancer. Had surgery a month ago, now supposed to start the regular IV chemo on wednesday. They want to do the IP chemo too, but I have to gain enough weight for the dr. to be able to insert the pump in my abdoman. Hard to gain weight when everything I eat blows me up with so much gas, it the worst... anybody else having major bloating issues>

sorry you've joined us on these pages. I wish you the best on your journey. Most of us here have had to deal with bloating difficulties, usually associated with radiation treatments. I think you will find many more women dealing with your diagnosis on either the ovarian or uterine board. ((HUGS))
