Don't have any real answer regarding HIPEC or choosing a surgeon except maybe consider 2 surgeons doing the surgery at Moffitt at the same time. One surgeon for HIPEC, colon rectal surgeon for primary tumor.
Butt regarding colds & flu. Make sure your husband is up to date on flu shots. Make sure everyone at your house, washes there hands, use lots germ killing wipes on counters and around the house.
Hope others will come along with expert advice regarding HIPEC surgery,
All the best,
