Brief Answer:
Hello. Surgery is not feasible

Detailed Answer:
HEllo dear. I have gone through the details. So in a wide spread bowel cancer with omentum involvement, surgery is not feasible as it will not add to survival. Only treatment option which is there is of chemotherapy.
With chemotherapy, the survival may be prolonged however, I am sorry to say that chances of going into remission will be very low.
Thanks and regards

Hi. Can the omentum be possibly removed in a male as I know it can in female then get HIPEC OR INTRAPERITONEAL AND SYSTEMIC treatment. I have read similar cases and this is what cured them ? If chemo works well is there a possibility he could live 5+ years ? I am thinking of raising funds to bring him to the states.
Please answer all my questions
Thank you so much

Brief Answer:
Hello dear. It is a carefully selected option

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. HIPEC is a carefully selected option in a few patients and it depends upon the tumor type. Most commonly it is being done in cancer of appendix, ovary, and mesothelioma. We usually donot perform this in colonic cancer and in those cancer who have a very high tumor burden. In your case, selection can be done once a surgeon examines you and your CT scan report. It has some favourable results.
Thanks and regards

Hi. So as I asked before can the opmentum be removed from a make person ?
The small and large bowel is affected and has travelled to the opmentum so CAN there still be favourable results when it has wide spread to the opmentum. It is Not in liver etc .
