  1. I've been home for 2 weeks following a 7 week stay in Basingstoke. The team there, both surgeons and nurses, cannot be faulted. Mr Mohamed is brilliant, as are the other 4 PMP surgeons. It was touch and go for a while as my first symptom was a ruptured bowel, which led to liver/kidney failure, but they got me through it and made me strong enough for the big op. 13 hours and 3kg of tumour later, I am hopeful that I am cured. As many others have commented, it's a great diet, as I lost 4st in those 7 weeks.
    My message to sufferers is to be strong and have faith in the surgeons.

  2. Hello,

    I've just came across this website and wish I'd known about it sooner. I was diagnosed with PMP in October 2010 and had surgery at Basingstoke in May 2011 lasting 10 hours. Everyone is such an inspiration that has had to deal with PMP.

  5. My mother died in april 2012 at the age of 62. After her second HIPEC surgery at the AVL-NKI in Amsterdam. She was diagnosed with PMP in 2007. After a second opinion, because of a wrong diagnoses. I am grateful for the 5 years we had together. I hope this site will give more awareness for PMP!

  6. And Viv, best of luck with your treatment. It is a scary time for the family. I was a bit numb looking at the best side - no real fear. This time last year I had not even been diagnosed. Had an operation to remove my appendix on 21 December and they noticed PMP. The Basingstoke team are great, both surgeons and nurses. If you want to chat let me know. Ray

  7. I had surgery and HIPEC last April in Basingstoke under the excellent care of Brendan Moran and his team. The hospital stay was for five weeks and the subsequent recovery has not been easy, with lots of ups and downs, but I am feeling pretty well now. I returned to work three weeks ago - an important milestone - and each day I feel stronger. For me, taking exercise regularly was a key factor in helping my recovery.

  8. Hi

    After a ruptured appendix have been recently diagnosed with PMP. I think family and friends are more scared than I.

    Off to sunny Basingstoke end November. Await results.

    Great to know that I am not alone.

  9. I just want to say a big thank you to the team of Surgeons and Nurses at Basingstoke Hospital for saving and caring for my partner Anne Marie who has just survived Pseudomyxoma Peretonei.
    Discharged on Friday 18/10/2013 after 3 weeks.
    She is recovering well at home now, a special thanks to Mr P Sugarbaker for his pioneering breakthrough and to Mr B Moran and Mr T Cecil.

  10. My father has had PM for some years and has just been told he isn't fit enough for debulking surgery that he had been hoping for/expecting v. soon. The mass is very large already. Can anyone give me an idea of what we might expect now that there are no apparent clinical options. Thank you.

  11. Last year, I lost my beautiful Mom aged 50 to this disease. She under went grueling surgey in 2011 at Basingstoke Hospital where by they removed many of her organs and then used the Hipec chemo to try and kill any remaining tumours. Unfortunately the cancer had already spread too far. This website is essential for those like myself who knew so little of this disease. Lets stop others from the same fate and raise awareness to recognise the signs sooner.

  12. Hello. I have had this surgery pseudomyxoma peritonei. It's been about 3-4 months now. I'm slowly gaining some weight back (from 92 - 120). I need another surgery later on if I get strong enough. I don't know much about any of this at all.

  17. Hi, I recently lost my mum after a 3 year battle with PMP. She was treated at Basingstoke in March 2010, but then when the cancer returned she had 3 debulking operations at our local hospital in Nottingham. She fought bravely but sadly had a stroke in December 2010 which made life much harder for her. She would have been 75 in December. I think this site is great, and would be happy to talk to anyone who wanted a friend as I was my mother's primary carer throughout her last years. Yvonne

  21. Hi all, I was diagnosed in 2008 during surgery for stage IV ovarian cancer - the second misdiagnosis - but at least the surgeon recognised PMP and referred me to Basingstoke where I had surgery in December 2009. I then had 8 cycles of chemo Oxyaplatin and capcytabin finishing in October 2010. A recent scan has shown that the disease is active again and that I face more chemo - 5FU this time. This site will be a godsend as I am going to needs support - as I dont have any family close by and have also recently lost my Mum, feel so lost without her support.

  22. I am 61 years of age.I had my PMP op urgently after diagnosis because I was at bursting point as if I was pregnant. I had my spleen,appendix,gallbladder,ovaries, and bowel removed. After my year scan they have found something around the lungs,so I have to go for my lung scan.I am keeping positive throughout this because what will be will be. Without stress adding to it. Mr Moran was excellentand so are you for highlighting PMP, because I have had no aftercare from anyone.

  23. Hi Dawn, I was diagnosed with PMP in November 2011, i have found your site very helpful and you an inspiration. It's good that so many have shared their experiences, and I dont feel so alone with this condition. I had my appendix out at the Christie hospital in January, and now have 3 monthly checks, before starting chemo.

  24. Hi Dawn, I read your article in the Daily Mail on Tuesday 17th April and wanted to say to you that are extremely brave for undergoing such an invasive operation. I couldn't quite believe it when I read it and had to read it again. I hope with all my heart that you continue to kick it into touch. You are inspiring,and I bet your girls are very proud of you.
    I have a sarcoma cancer that has returned so understand you when you refused to accept the intial '3 months' crap.Good for you,

    with very best wishes

  25. I have twice had lengthy operations to treat my PMP, once in 2005, and more recently in 2009. Both times I was under the care of the wonderful Brendan Moran and his team in Basingstoke.
    Currently, things are going well for me and i returned to working as a primary school teacher (part time) 2 years ago.
    It is good to read and share experiences with others.

  30. Hi Dawn, my name is Helen i live in wales and i have recently been diagnosed with PMP. I was diagnosed in November 2011 and have been told very little about the condition. I am waiting to be seen in Basingstoke hospital, I have been back and for to the doctor for over 5 years complaining of severe back pain and other symptoms and after going to have a laparoscopy for cysts on the ovaries which they thought it was found my abdomen full of this jelly substance which now is this tumour, I'm finding it very hard to cope with this news as I still know very little but thanks to this website I'm feeling a little bit more positive it is so frightning as I have 3 children and worry for the future so it's lovely to read everyone's stories. Well done. Helen

  31. I lost my mum to PMP nearly a year ago she had fought it for nearly 10 years and the one thing I would say is keep on at hospitals etc. There is not enough knowledge about this terrible disease our local hospital knew very little about it. Keep up the good work trying to raise the profile of PMP.

  32. I was diagnosed with this disease in 2009 and have been watching it almost ever since. I have been taking chemotherapy for about a year now, in between bipass surgery. They watch a tumor marker which starter at 3 and is up to 9 now. Its great to have you out there and hopefully the research will find a cure before the desease gets us. Thank you for the site.

  33. Hi Dawn.
    When Roy got struck with PMP we had never heard of it and it was overwhelming. All the work you are doing is just great .. incredible.. you are an angel from above. It is so helpful to have a resource and an ear to lend . I am really impressed. Love your website too... great job with the colors and graphics. :)

  34. You should be very proud of yourself for setting up this charity. I lost my Dad to PMP just over 7 years ago when I was 15 years old. It is an evil disease and we need more people fighting to find a cure. Well done Dawn! x

  36. Wow, Dawn, what a site! Much needed and you are such a go-getter, girl! Are you gonna slow down after you and Jay get hitched in Jamaica? ;) My other half is scheduled for his second MOAS on Dec. 29 and the stress is starting to weigh, so think of us, send prayers skyward. Thanks, again, for all you do, luv!

  37. This site is needed. You saw the need and have provided all of us with a bright, cheerful, invaluable resource. You have provided us with a place to share our stories, ask our questions, and get involved to promote awareness. Way to go Dawn.

  38. Dawn, you are an amazing woman. Through your own fight you have managed to create such a wonderful organization all in the name of love. It takes an extraordinary person to work as hard and diligently as you have and good things are happening as we speak. Keep up the good fight and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for fighting for others with your disease as you do.

  39. Dawn, you are a such a wonderful spokesperson for us. Thank you for all of the your hard work you do to try to raise awareness of this horrible disease. The ONLY good thing about PMP is getting to meet the amazingly strong people in our support groups.

  43. Hi Dawn I think you are amazing you have been through so much. My mother recently was diagnosed with pseudomyxoma in her ovary she had a full hysterectomy and appendix and omentum out, the cyst had ruptured but for now she doesnt need chemo, I had never heard of this disease it was very scary not knowing anything about it. She will be scanned every 3 mths if it returns it will be on her small bowel we pray this doesnt happen. She is 61, her symptoms began in jan/feb, by may she looked 7 mths pregnant but was losing weight everywhere else, she lost nearly 4 stone in all after op in july.It is reassuring reading this and knowing we are not alone.

  45. Hi Dawn,
    Just wanted to say hi and glad you're doing well. I saw you in Basingstoke in June 2008, you were in the same ward and bay as my aunty Pat, who is a fellow pmp survivor. She told me about your website and all the incredible things you are doing to raise awareness. Also to let you know she is fighting fit and has made a full recovery.
    Keep up the good work xx

    This ladies name is Dawn Green, It is an honour to make your acquaintance.

  47. HI Dawn
    What a total inspiration you are!!
    I too was diagnosed in June 2006 with PMP after an operation that was suspected ovarian cancer which turned out to be PMP! I was then referred to Brendon at Basingstoke and in Jan 2007 had MOAS lasting thirteen and half hours to remove the mass, it was a really tough recovery after a few complications and developing sepsis but with lots of excellent care by all the nurses at Basingstoke hospital and of course lovely Sue Elves and her team i made a remarkable recovery. I wouldnt be here now if it werent for them, i owe so much to them and would love to offer support in helping you raise funds! I have been having yearly CT scans since my surgery and my latest one in May this year has shown a slight return of the disease! I have every faith that Brendon and that he is managing me very well and he has reccomended i have another scan in Oct. Thank goodness for survivors like you who have the drive and determination to put this disease on the map and go onto helping support other fellow sufferers!! You of course know the importance of having the total support! It can be a lonely experience as it is still so rare, great website keep up the great work!!
    we are all behind you!!
    take care Julia xx

  48. Dawn:

    Over the past several years our little community has grown by getting the word out or as we put it awareness. You have done so much with so little to spread awareness in the UK with very little resource, you have over come and adapted to any and all obstacles in your way, you're truly amazing. Keep up the good work.

    Posted on

  49. Dawn, thanks for being such an outgoing advocate for this horrible disease called PMP! Your delightful enthusiasm, dedication and awareness is contagious. Keep the word going through your site and your presence in the public forum...we need advocates like you!

  51. Thank you so much for starting this site. We can never have too many sources available. There is not enough known about this horrible disease. I am coming upon my first anniversary of being CA free. I pray that it continues and that someday there is a cure for all of us.
    Thoughts and prayers for all of us (survivors and newly diagnosed.) Again Thank You.

  70. When they said I had a one in a million cancer, I felt so alone. Everyone one knows someone who knows someone who has breast cancer, lung cancer, etc. But when I told people what I had been "blessed" with the response was always "pseudo what?"
    Finding a support network has been a godsend. Sharing information and inspiration makes the rough times not so isolating. Knowing there's someone to talk to, even if they are half way around the world, is so comforting.
    My PMP brothers and sisters are there for me whenever I need to compare symptoms, treatments, or ask for a virtual hug. Thanks Dawn!

  71. Great job and keep up the good work. The more information the better we all are in fighting this disease.

  73. Dawn, thank you for putting together this website, and sharing your story. Cancer is hard for anyone. Having a rare cancer, where there is little information about outcomes / treatments is tougher still.

    Being able to find others in the same boat makes things more manageable. Keep up the good work, and best of luck for "unremarkable" scans :)

    Posted on

  74. Thank you Dawn for creating a place where I could find answers and support for this very rare cancer. When I couldn't get a clear answer from my doctors because they really didn't know, I received enough information and resources from this site that helped me educate them in some cases. I had surgery in a land where I didn't understand the language, this site gave me the peace and confidence I needed to fight and continue to fight. You are a very special woman for fighting this cancer, but more for having the vision to see that education is needed about this horrible disease.

  78. I am so excited about this website! I was diagnosed in Oct. of 2006 with PMP. starting in the ovary. I had two surgeries, the first being a total hysterectomy and removal of the omentum. The second surgery was in June of 2007. Then, my appendix, spleen, and a portion of my stomach were removed. My liver and diaphram were scraped and heated chemo was done. I thought I was going to have to go to Washington D.C. or Texas to have the surgery but I found a Doctor (wonderful man) right where I live, University of Cincinnati Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A. I also tried to do research on the web. Sure wish your site was available then. Part of what I continue to deal with is the feeling that I am alone. Dawn, when I read your comment about having no belly button, I laughed and felt I now belong. I am so excited about the bracelets and your efforts for fund raising and research encouragement. Thank you, Thank you. Do you know of anyone in the states that have PMP? I have yet to actually meet anyone.
    Thanks again for your efforts,
    Bonnie

I had the MOAS at the Christie (who are all fantastic especially my specialist nurse Bex) My op removed Gall bladder, spleen, belly button, stomache lining, remaining ovary, full hysterectomy, bowel cleaned up and diaphram and liver shaved. I am just awaiting more results from latest CT scan and can say im more than a little nerveous, so it is a relief that i have found this wonderful site where experiences can be shared by people who are suffering from this rare cancer, thank you.

  87. I was diagnosed last June with PMP. I have been unbelievably lucky because the cancer was confined to my Appendix; it had not burst and had not spread. My diagnosis was completely by chance and I had no symptoms at all. Somehow after a routine medical I was referred to Mr Satvinder Mudan in london. He immediately operated and removed chunks of my insides but the biopsies revealed that it was just in my appendix (which was huge!). What was thought to be a grim prognosis just turned out to be just post operative care.
    Who knows what the future will bring but at least I can consider a future. I have been blessed. I am so sorry to all of you who have not been so fortunate.
    My GP had never heard of it - and that probably goes for the vast majority - he only put in my medical records an entry "appendix operation" - so he obviouly learned a lot from my experince! Whilst there continues to be such ignorance and lack of care this nasty illness will continue to go undiagnosed.
    I wish you all the very best wishes in your battles, and support and love from those you are close to.
    The more knowledge of this the better the chance of others to be as lucky as I have been.
    Charlie

  89. I would just like to say a huge thank you to Dawn for all your support recently. It has been an emotional rollercoaster with my mums health but she is doing really well in herself at present. Your website provided us with some valuable info and you provided alot of support via email and facebook. I think you are an inspiration to others Dawn and I really hope this charity takes off as you have made a huge difference to me as someone who until a few months ago had never heard of the condition. Many of the large and well known charities started with one persons vision and passion to support others who followed them. Good luck with everything, you deserve it. Mel x

  94. Hi Dawn

    I am in Australia and sitting in my loungeroom waiting for the operation for PMP (no known date as yet). I was researching fatigue and PMP and I come across your website somehow. Its given me a boost in a situation when I know I am deteriorating but unsure when I can have the operation. I have a caringbridge website to share information about my condition and operation with family and friends, will put your link on there. I have a sister and niece in England and hoping they can help your fundraising efforts. Well done.

  95. Fantastic website. My wife, Samina had the big op after her cancer diagnosis at the beginning of this year. She's now recovering well. We'll be glad to see the back of 2010! Feeling positive for the future.

  96. I was there the day the phone call was made. It was awful Dawn was almost told to go home and die. Research on the internet and a positive attitude led to there being a light at the end of the tunnel. Opperation after opperation, feeling like it would never end, Dawn came out fighting for her children. Dawn always said "i can't go, I have my girls". It was heartbreaking to watch this but words from the fighting women has meant she is around today, full of life and an inspiration to anybody that has this shocking awful disease. You have one life, live it to the full xxxx Proud of you Miss Green!

  99. Hi Dawn - congratulations on the setting up of your website. There is lots of information which will be a Godsend to those just newly diagnosed with pmp. I know I would have found it invaluable. Your website in no way detracts from the Christie site forum. The more info available the better. Keep up the good work. I just wish I lived closer to come to some of your fundraising events but, who knows, maybe one day.

  100. Well done Dawn!
    What a fantastic website. Great to see our own logo, wristbands and car stickers. Had I not been diagnosed with PMP I would still never have heard of it today,its a rarely known cancer and a complete mystery to some GPs and hospitals.
    My PMP was discovered in March 2009. I had the MOAS in June 2009. Five weeks in Basingstoke - could not fault the care- and first year's Scan and blood tests were in June this year. All clear!!!! Met Dawn thru Forum and we were in hospital together at Basingstoke. Its great to have someone to share your ups and downs with which isnt easy when you are one in a million!

  101. Hiya Dawn

    I just wanted to say how lovely it has been for me to be in touch with Dawn. I was diagnosed with PMP in June 2002 and had the MOAS in January 2003. Since then I have been quite isolated, only being in touch with one other sufferer. I recently contacted Dawn and we have talked loads about our condition and she has introduced me to other people she has met with PMP. It is so comforting being able to talk frankly with someone who knows exactly how you feel. It's not always easy to talk to your family and friends about all the weird things going on in your mind, so finding other PMP sufferers to speak to is invaluable. After speaking with Dawn it made me realise that we may not all suffer the same symptoms as each other and the path our illness follows is never the same a the next person's but all the feelings and emotions we go through are more or less the same. Therefore, we must all stick together and support Dawn with this fantastic website!!

    lots of love julie x

  102. Hi Dawn,

    Id just to like to share with everyone how invaluable you have been to myself and my family over the past couple of months. My father in law has been diagnosed with pmp and found out yesterday he is a candidate for surgery (moas) in january. Without your calming influence, guidance and support I really dont know how we would have remained sane.
    I found relative "down to earth" and most importantly "honest" information extremely hard to find and when I thought I had, I found it quite hard to decifer and digest.
    Your story shows one womans struggle to not only accept an illness but also face it head on, fight like an absolute trooper and come out the other side not only on top and a winner but an absolute inspiration to so many others! Not only have you had your world turned upside down once, its happened twice, which to me is inconceivable but somehow you have faced it and are still here willing and wanting to help others in their journey they may be about to undertake.
    I wish you all the love and luck in the world with the success of this website, it really has been a possible life saver for us and no doubt will be again in the future to other families.
    May the angels watch over you, your family, all other pmp soldiers and families now and forever!

  107. My husband was diagnosised in July of this year, he had surgery on Aug. 23, however the tumor was to large, and he's now recuperating from that surgery, as soon as the incision heals completely he will start chemo for 3 months, and hopefully @ the end of the 3 months he will have the surgery again. Thank you so much for your website!
