carcinomatosis of peritoneal cavity

My cancer disease has changed or progressed from ovarian cancer to carcinomatosis of peritoneal cavity.  Have others experience this progression and should I drop the referral of my cancer to just the peritoneal cancer?  My RN daughter believes if it begins as ovarian it remains that as the primary cancer.  In the larger scale of things this a minor concern.  I jlust wondered what you all thought and experienced.

Hamzah_mohd~Here R web links 2 help U find answers 4 Mum's rare cancer~hope it helps!

Have chosen to create a new forum topic since "hamzah_mohd" has entered into a discussion that took place in 2011.  More than likely many of those are no longer posting, but if they are, they can still answer but I doubt that many replies will come from people who posted in that particular time frame.  Nevertheless, I would prefer to put this posting on a forum topic all its own.  Loretta

The posting I am referring to is shown below:

This letter is written to answer one of the post in the Peritoneal Cancer forum.  However, since so many have asked the question in the past, "What is HIPEC?", I thought that if I entered this info on a separate topic line, it could more easily be found for others to read as well.  These references relate to the UPMC program for HYPERTHERMIC INTRAPERITONEAL CHEMOPERFUSION (HIPEC) TREATMENT

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.
