My husband was diagnosed with small cell Neuroendocrine of the colon in August. A colonectomy removed all the cancer cells and effected lymph nodes from the colon. He had six rounds of chemo to treat the liver and other sites. He is now going in for organ scraping surgery, which proposes to prohibit regrowth long term. Anyone have experience with this surgery? We have also explored shake and bake chemo at MD Anderson, where they pour chemo into the abdominal cavity heat and shake it to eat the lining of the exposed surfaces. Keep sharing experiences good and bad, it really does help.View Thread
