Some FAQs about HIPEC Cancer Treatment

What are the benefits of HIPEC Cancer Treatment?

HIPEC differs from conventional chemotherapy in terms of the way it is used. HIPEC is a much more targeted type of chemotherapy wherein the microscopic cancer cells that cannot be surgically removed are effectively killed. It is much more effective in killing cancer cells without having the side effects of conventional chemotherapy like diarrhoea and hair loss.

How long does it take to recover from HIPEC surgery?

The time for recovery depends on many factors including

  • The extent of surgery,
  • The person’s general condition
  • Underlying illnesses
  • Person’s age.

Typically, in an uncomplicated case, the person is able to walk around by the time they get discharged from the hospital. They can return to work in a month’s time, however, heavy lifting is not allowed at least for 2-3 months post the procedure. The person may feel fatigued for up to 2-3 months post the procedure. Most people return to normal functioning in 3 to 6 months after the procedure.

What is the average length of hospital stay after HIPEC surgery?

The surgical procedure itself is extensive and could take around 8-14 hours depending on the type of cancer and its extent. Post-operative care is of paramount importance to monitor outcomes and prevent any complications. The individuals are required to stay in the hospital for around 10-12 days. The length of stay could increase in case of any severe complications post-therapy.

Are the side effects of HIPEC the same as that of chemotherapy?

Since HIPEC is delivered directly at the location of a tumour and not instilled in the body like conventional chemotherapy, the side effects like hair loss, oral sores and diarrhoea generally do not occur.
