Hy Audrey! My mom has just been diagnosed with this "un-specific" kind of cancer. The worst of it is not knowing where it comes from. She is beginning chemo next week and I'm terrified. It will be great to have news from you. Best regards, Cecilia

Has anyone received any additional information on this disease? I'm interested in treatment information as well as how everyone is doing since diagnosed.

Hi,

My mother was diagosed with this cancer in October.  She was recieving cisplatin and gemzar as her therapy treatment but due to persistent nausea they are going to discontinue the cisplatin and see how she makes out on the gemzar only.  So far the chemo seems to be working in that her tumor markers are decreasing -- we will see if this continues when she is only getting the gemzar. 

 When she presented with the cancer she was VERY bloated with a large amount of fluid in her abdomen.  After exploratory surgery where some of her tumor was removed she had intraperitoneal chemo (cisplatin) to deal with the fluid build-up.  This treatment has worked for her so far, as the fluid has not come back and its been almost 3 months.  Prior to the treatment she had to have her abdomen drained every week.

I hope what little info I have provided is helpful to someone.
