i am posting this on behalf of my father who has recently been diagnosed with colorectal cancer
he underwent the surgery today in delhi ( India) )( 13-12-2012) ( Right hemocolectomy,removal of mesentry and omentum)
the surgeon said that they saw subcentimeter 2 seeds in peritonium also and removed those also along with the lymph nodes. There were no ascites seen
There was no visible spread detected in liver or kidneys. The pre surgery PET CT scan also did not show any spread
while we post operative biopsy report. I was wondering if anyone can provide an opinion if he is a good candidate for HIPEC once he recovers from this surgery.
