Was wondering how your consult went, AJ
That was quick. They appear to be quick & organized there @ UCSD from initial contact to consult to scheduling surgery. BFF is scheduled there, also w/Dr. Lowy, next wk for HIPEC (also appendix cancer).
Glad you were a candidate & doing fine! Curious as to how long your surgery was. Estimate for my friend, 5 hrs.
I hope you come back & share some of your experience for our members here when you feel up to it. I plan to share as much as I can 2nd hand (easier for me as I'm not the patient).
Kudos to you for taking the bull by the horns in self advocacy.
Best Wishes in healing,
