Got my diagnosis today, its pseudomyxoma peritonei and not OC. The surgeon told me that its low grade disease (phew!) but it doesn't respond to ordinary chemo or radiotherapy. Its a rare form of cancer that originated in my appendix and has spread all around my abdomen, including my liver. I have been referred on to a bowel surgeon for a colonoscopy and suitablity for the Sugarbaker procedure. The surgeon felt that due to my age and fitness level I am a good candidate as it is very major surgery. If I cannot have this op then it will be treatment of symtoms as they arise. I really appreciate all the support and kindness shown by all the ladies on this site and I know I dont have OC but I would like to continue visiting to chat.
