__ RS from the USA asks:

“How long does it take to recuperate from HIPEC?
What are the post op side effects of HIPEC?”

GG responds:

“Recuperation times and side effects are as varied as our fellow patients themselves. Currently, within the PMP Pals’ Network, post HIPEC patients range in age from 30 to 80 years of age!

The most common side effects reported among our post HIPEC Pals are fatigue, nausea, medical anorexia, and weight loss; however these symptoms may related to CRS itself and can occur without HIPEC.

Here are photos of just a few of the cancer free Pals, all of whom have been treated with HIPEC many years ago.

 Here are articles written by a few of our longtime Pals who have been cancer  free, on average, ten years post HIPEC.
