Hi, 

My mom, aged 49 is diagnosed with Primary Peritoneum cancer  on 17th Sept'2016. Her CA125 is around 4500. To reduce the CA 125 levels, she will be treated first with chemotherapy

As part of treatment,she will be given three chemotherapy sessions thrice a week, followed by major surgery and then three chemotherapy sessions.

Peritoneal cancer detected after radical bladder cancer removal

Hi,  

My sister underwent radical bladder removal surgery in April.  Her uterus,  ovaries ,  fallopian tubes and part of vagina were removed.  She took six chemo sessions before and six after the surgery.  Twenty days after her last chemo,  she had again been detected as having secondary abdominal or peritoneal cancer.  Doctors are suggesting Hipec treatment.

Newbie questions and work after diagnosis and during treatment?

Hi.  My is Michele.  I'm 56, single,  live alone,  no kids or family closer than 3000 miles.    I was diagnosed with primary peritoneal cancer 3/11/16. I had surgery within a week - full hysterectomy, removal of fatty tissue layer and appendix.  Lots of fluid removed from abdomen and lungs.  Spread to Lungs,  diaphragm and lymph nodes.  Started chemo the next week - 6 treatments 3 weeks apart.  I have my final chemo in 2 weeks.  My initial CA125 was 1800, after two treatments 600, after 3 treatments 375 and now after 4 is back up to 451.

Mom's Diagnosis

My mom was recently diagnosed with metastatic poorly differentiated carcinoma, Stage 4.  The bulk of the disease is on the omentum, but it is also throughout the abdominal wall.  Her left ovary is slightly "abnormal" but no biopsy was taken.  They have not identified a source but it is most likely upper GI.  Her main symptom up to now has been pain while eating, which has become quite severe.  A bone scan revealed that it has spread to her rib cage.

We've been told that surgery is not an option and she's starting gemcetabine and cisplatin this week.

Peritoneal Cancer most likely recurrent metastatic prostate carcinoma

HI, my FIL just recieved his CT scan results back and the impression (w/out biopsy) is peritoneal Cancer most likely recurrent metastaic prostate carcinoma.  I am told this is extremely, extremely rare.  Apparently this is so as I cannot find any information of this form on the internet anywhere.  We are waiting for the biopsy to be scheduled so I may be jumping the gun a bit with quesitons, but I have so many!!  Is anyone familiar with this form of PC?

BRIAN from the North~Things I learned during my chemo treatments~Hope it will B helpful 2 U & Mom~Wishing her all the best!

Hello again Brian,

This letter is an answer to what I promised you earlier about things I found helpful during my chemo sessions.  I decided to put it in a separate topic so that others might find the information useful as well.  Hopefully this will help you to understand what your Mom may experience during her chemo sessions.  It’s good to know that your Mom has tolerated her first chemo well.

Mom's first Chemo

Hello All,

I went in with my mother for her first chemo treatment and she responded very well with no allergic reactions.  The anti-nausea drugs have been a huge help for her I think.  I saw her bloodwork for the first time (I work away for 14 days at a time) and in a two week period prior to her chemo her CA125 number went from 6600+ down to a little over 6400.  She also managed to put on 2 lbs of weight.  Is the decrease in CA125 number normal?  

We go for another session near the end of the month and I sure hope that her CA125 number goes down further.
