I have had a sudden change in diagnosis based on my pathology going for second and third opinions. I went from endometriod FIGO 2/3 to high grade serous, Stage 1C2, based on the fact that they had no idea that the cancer was there and so ruptured an enormous ovarian cyst in situ in my abdomen during laparoscopic surgery to remove it.
Based on the new diagnosis, I am now being offered IP chemo, where the cisplatin drug is delivered directly to the abdominal and pelvic cavity via an inserted port. The Taxol will still be by IV. Research shows that this has had better outcomes in Stage 4 cancer, but no research in earlier stages like mine.
Has anyone had IP treatments? Can you share your experience with me? Thanks in advance.
