Reoccurence of the cancer after PMP treatment

Posted by

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!!

I'm sorry to hear that your husband has appendiceal cancer. I don't know anything about this cancer but I noticed that your post hadn't had any answers.

I've had a look on this website for you and found this information about cancer of the appendix that Macmillan produce.

If you don't get any responses to your post you could ask about this cancer in ask a nurse, and one of the specialist nurses will aim to get back to you within 2 days, or phone the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000. It's free to call, open daily from 8am to 8pm and staffed by specialist cancer nurses.

Finally, as you've discovered, caring for someone with cancer can be tough and you might like to join the carers group which is a safe and supportive place to discuss your worries and emotions. If you'd like to join just click on the link and then choose 'Join This Group' on the page that opens.
