This might seem like a silly question but I'll explain my position and ask it anyway. I have low grade tumours which are all over my peritoneum. When I had the laparoscopy last year, I was told that it was hard for my surgeon to get in to the abdomen to get samples because everything was stuck together as a result of both adhesions and the disease. I was 3c at the time but since then evidence has pointed to the cells being outside of the abdominal cavity at the time of diagnosis. I had six rounds of carboplatin which seemed to reduce the tumours and stablilize the condition. I was wondering if the organs get unstuck and everything (except the adhesions) goes back to normal. I get a lot of pain from my abdomen and don't know how other women can be active with the condition because I find the pain gets in the way even with pain medication. Maybe the pain comes from the adhesions and not the cancer.
