Hi there, I have been diagnosed with omentum cancer. My oncologist stated that surgery is not an option, but I am wondering a couple of things that perhaps one of you might kindly take the time to answer...
1. Is Omentum and Peritoneal cancer the same thing?
2. Is it terminal? My DR. stated treatment would be chemo therapy and stated removing the tumor would be problematic, so wonder if the chemo shrinks the tumor? I am considered a high risk patient also due to previous cancer and diabetes, etc.
3. My Dr. spoke of a specific tumor and I am reading at these message boards that perhps some of you have many small nodules.
I have yet to work up the treatment plan with my Dr. He is a fabulous doctor but can be brusk and often it is hard to get a good understanding when speaking with him.
So basically my head is spinning and aching and I would love to get some insight from the people in the know...you all!
