- Inoperable. Small tumors and one massive tumor within abdomen.
- Debulking - Removed a 7cm x 8cm x 9cm tumor from pelvic floor. Peeled it off the other organs in a five hour operation. Other much smaller tumors were also found sprinkled throughout abdomen.
- Surgery #3 - Relapse. Large tumor had choked intestines by the ileum, where the large and small intestines join. Another, smaller tumor was found partially blocking the small intestine "upstream". An ileostomy was performed to eliminate the blockage. Once again, numerous small tumors were found throughout abdomen.
- Surgery #4 -Removed ileostomy and restored to normal. Tumors were "sprinkled like salt" throughout abdomen and were inoperable.
- Two small tumors growing behind his bladder
- During second surgery a Dektal mesh sling was inserted into abdomen to elevate the abdominal organs to allow the radiologist to "cone done" into the pelvic floor to deliver more direct radiation. The sling would descend by itself in six weeks.
- Vincristine/5-FU along with seven weeks of irradiation.
- Four cycles - Carboplatin, Cytoxin, and VP-16
- MSKCC - P6 Protocol - Two rounds - Cytoxan/Adriamycin/Vincristine alternating with Ifos/VP.
- MD Anderson Protocol - 3 cycles of Bleo/MTX/Cisplat/VCR alternating with Cytox/Actino/VCR. 1 cycle of ACE.
Stem Cell Transplant
- High dose chemo - Melphalan, carboplatin, and etoposide
Complication: During stem cell transplant, the triple lumen cathetar became infected with klebsiella pneumoniae and was in the superior vena cava. Surgery needed. Sepsis continued. On kidney dialysis.
