Hi,I was recently diagnosed with small cell ovarian cancer and I had surgery approx. 4 weeks ago. I have been having a hard time trying to find out what is the best treatment option following surgery. What type of chemo did your daughter receive? There is a hospital in Boston who is using cisplatin IV and there is another hospital in Chicago that is administering the chemo via intraperitioneal (not sure yet what type). Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated and I will let you know any information that I am able to find out as well. Best of luck with everything.
