Ive been diagnosed with stage 3A fallopian tube cancer (serous carcinoma)...the doctors follow the same regimen as epithelial ovarian cancer...I can get platinum based treatment via IV or IP (intraperitoneal)...my question is does anyone recommend IV over IP, or vice versa? Ive been told that IP has better success rate but much more toxic and difficult then IV. Please any advice would help I must make a decision soon. Thanks for the help

Perhaps try the ovarian cancer boards.  I have no experience with IP chemo but was under the impression that the do both at the same time.  Good luck.  Hugs.
