I've been on this board for about 15 years. I have seen many times that the PC was in the peritoneum. One would treat the PC spread to the peritoneum the same if it is the peritoneum as what they would treat if it were say in the liver or the lung(with chemo's being the same)

The best way I can explain it is by a zoo. We have a zoo, the zoo is our cancer. In that zoo we have lions(the lion will be bone cancer) the lion eats meat, the meat is our chemo. In that zoo we have an elephant(the elephant will be our PC) that eats hay, the hay is our chemo. Now our elephant walks over to the lion cage, he is still an elephant he hasn't changed into an lion just because he is in the lion cage and he will still need his hay(chemo for PC) Hugs Lillie
