But from what I read so far, the CRS is a very extensive procedure and you would benefit greatly if you go with an experienced surgeon. At MSK, I will have Dr. Nash. My local surgeon is board certified in 2013. I saw a negative review on the surgeon from vitals. com. That scared me off greatly. From your signature, you have done HIPEC twice. Did you have it done as MSK? You don't think HIPEC will help much with peri met from CC?

I was offered to participate in the study using LUM imaging system for detecting cancer cells during the surgery. This study was done for Breast cancer ( https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03686215 ) and I will be the first to try for peritoneal surface Malignancies in CC patient.
I am nervous because the CRS is an extensive procedure and adding LUM015 dye to my body with unknown side effect then heated chemo?
I'm debating should I go with this study or opt out? Any suggestion?
