Ascities Pain Management

i was originally diagnosed with stage 3 **** cancer in 2015, the necessary surgery was performed followed by 6 months of chemo from which i was told i was now clear. However this year cancer has returned in the form of peritoneal mastasis.

together with this i have ascities fluid build up with the first drain on the 20th March (4litres) and again on the 3rd Aprill (6litres).

i have started on a new chemo program but the abdominal pain is constant causing no sleep.

New Diagnosis

Hello All... hope this message finds everyone well. My family member has been recently diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis. They need assistance in finding a hospital, preferably in the SE United States, that will provide therapy given the fact that the family member does not have insurance. I have researched some clinical trials, but to no avail. Any assistance or recommendations that could be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Peritoneal cancer detected after radical bladder cancer removal


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.
