Welcome to the community. Sorry you’ve found yourself here but hopefully you’ll be able to get support from the people here.

I don’t have PMCA, so unfortunately I have a different cancer experience to you but there may be other here who have. 

Id like to signpost you to the pmpsurvivor website. I am a trustee of the charity and they support patient and carers with pmp, appendix and peritoneal malignancies. The website is https://www.pseudomyxomasurvivor.org. I know for certain that you will find people there that share your cancer experience and type. 

The support group is much more active than the Macmillan pmp online community so hopefully you’ll find it useful. Let me know how you get on. 

Best wishes
