i.p. insertion unsuccessful

i had the surgery to insert the port-a-catheter in my abdomen yesterday but due to the internal conditions from my 2 surgeries, the dr. had difficulty placing the catheter and punctured my bowel with a very fine needle. stayed in hospital overnight for observation in case the bowel leaked and caused infection. was given i.v. of saline and antibiotic overnight. no signs of infection so far; discharged this morning on a liquid diet for a couple of days. feeling fine; however, i don't think i will be a canditate for this i.p. chemo.

was supposed to receive chemo tomorrow, june 6, but that has been cancelled to allow time for bowel to heal and make sure no infection. resheduled for next wed., june 13. unable to take taxol but so far no problem with carboplatin in 2 treatments. i don't know if the gyn/onc will replace the taxol with something else or not.

ngm, I'm so sorry for this set back. I'm praying your doc will come up with something absolutely amazing for you and get those cancer cells under check. You are a fighter and will get through this. Rest and heal and let us know what the game plan is for your next treatment.

The best to you dear! Sorry to hear of your difficulties with this IP. Sounds like you and doctor are still on top of it and can try it or something else beneficial again when safe to do so. Good luck to you! -Terri
