My husband has appendiceal cancer and was treated by Dr Faheed Mohamed at Basingstoke Hospital Jan 2017. Three high grade tumours removed. He had 6 months of chemo. Scan in Jan 2018 clear, returned July 2018. Further chemo in Sept for 3 months. He has high grade appendiceal cancer that spreads outside of the abdomen. Is there anyone coping with something similar? It's so rare and very little known of this cancer. I am his wife who is finding it tough!!
