Anyone here been diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis?
I have stage III advanced pancreatic cancer which is inoperable. I have been undergoing chemotherapy with fulfirini. I recently had a scan which showed a very large mass on my ovary and signs of peritoneal carcinomatosis. I am having surgery next week to remove the mass, both ovaries and fallopian tubes. Whether they do any further surgery depends on determining whether it is a metatisis from the pancreas or new ovarian cancer. Both cancers could have caused the spread to the peritoneal lining. I believe I am now stage IV. I wonder how my health will change with this new development and if chemo can still help.
