Update: My last chemotherapy treatment ended in the middle of April. After taking the time to deal with some personal matters in May, I went to Vancouver to UBC Hospital last week for a laparoscopic exam to determine if I would be a candidate for HIPEC surgery. Oncoclogist Surgeon who performed the laparoscopy said everything appeared stable. I meet via telephone with Oncologists on Monday to finalize next steps.

Welcome, @Vaughn . It sounds like the laparoscopy was actually a good idea which allowed you and the surgeon to take the bull by the horns before it rampaged. You and your wife must be filled with questions and I hope your Medical Team fills you in and allows you both to relax a bit very soon.
