I was diagnosed very quickly with Stage 4 peritoneal cancer in March 2016. Did 6 treatments of Taxol/Carbol. Worked for abt 12 weeks then stopped. Main symptom ascites. Now on Gemzar. Worse side effects and no relief of ascites. Dr is going to drain ascites if it's not down by next week. I had such high hopes for this treatment now I'm so disappointed. Very depressed.
