Hi Everyone. I'm new to the site. My partner was diagnosed with colon cancer in february he is 40, he had a bowel obstruction and was rushed in for emergency surgery where they found some tumors in his bowel along with this peritoneal studding which they didn't remove. He has now had chemo every fortnight for the last 14 weeks and then he had a scan yesterday where they have said that the chemo was working on the tumors but not on the peritoneum. Does anyone know anything about this and why might it not work when other people on here seem to be doing quite well with the condition. It is really scary and am just looking for help and to see if anyone knows how long you can last with this condition, from what I have read online the prognosis is terrible. I have read about the HIPEC treatment and hope we can get him onto this. Thanks everyone.
