I'm sorry about your wife. Where are you being treated? It would be worth asking for a referral to the Christie in Manchester or Basingstoke, which are the two UK specialist centres for peritoneal surface malignancies. There are a number of cancer types that start in the appendix and are often grouped together under the term "pseudomyxoma" and you might find it helpful to get advice from the UK national charity, Pseudomyxona Survivor. They can help you organise a second opinion if you decide this is helpd. Wishing you all the best.
If you have any questions about Macmillan, or would like to talk to someone about cancer, we have a team of experts
who can help.
