Has any one had this treatment and was is it success full I am still recovering from the operation 7 Weeks ago and I am apprehensive about the side effects of the Chemo how bad is it. I have Also I been searching the internet and understand there is a new treatment on the way where they reengineer your own immune cells reinject them back into your body to get your own immune cells to kill the cancer do you know of any doctors in Australia that do this procedure ?
Good mmorning. I’ve been reading through these threads with interest because I need to have this operation.....not exactly sure when yet. I’m in Brisbane.......from what I have heard and read have a wonder surgeon but really interesting to speaking to people who know what is playing through my mind, those who are also about to go through it.

Hi Zoble, have read with interest your query, as I too will be having this op in the next few weeks at the RPA in Sydney. So was wondering how you have coped after the operation i.e. pain level and have you resumed back to your normal life and activities. As I have been reading so many articles on this I am starting to wonder whether I should go ahead with this op or not. Also when chemo was pumped into your tummy did you end up losing your hair, I know this is only a small part to worry about but my husband loves my long hair....lol... Look forward to any positive (or bad) information that you can give me in helping me decide whether to go ahead with the op or not. Hope you are well and back on track.
