HIPEC is the gold standard for treating peri mets, and can be curative for some. It didn't work for me, however we are currently managing my disease with a combination of chemo and surgery. Chemo has worked on my peri mets, both in shrinking them/keeping things stable. However, it is commonly reported to not be particularly effective for some patients. Everyone's experience is unique, it seems. My advice would be to consult with a surgical oncologist who specializes in HIPEC, to determine if you would be a candidate for that procedure. It's tough, but probably your best bet. Best of luck to you!
