God bless you.

My mom went through intensive A/C and then Taxol Chemo followed by radiation and she is cancer-free and okay now. It was rough. Chemo is deadly. It kills everything--including cancer. So remember that. It's hell that nobody should have to go through. But if you need to, you should. Yes, it can kill you. But it kills the cancer. If it was positive in your nodes you should get Chemo. My mother's nodes were not positive. You need to start treating this ASAP. I'll keep you in my prayers. Please keep us updated on how you are and if there's anything we can do to help you through this time.

a reply to: meremortal like others have posted, please don't discount what your doctors have said or say what to do.
Rather than only go natural, I recommend you see a licensed Eastern medicine doctor in conjunction with getting Western treatment. An Eastern medicine practitioner can recommend what herbs to take and also what foods to eat. You might get acupuncture, but they probably won't give you massage as massage can be detrimental to any Cancer in your body (God forbid and may it all be gone)
My heart goes out to you on your journey back to well being. God bless you.
I don't personally know what your going through, but you are being strong. I had recently found lumps in my breasts and they turned out benign. I don't think I would be as strong as you are being, but was trying my best to be strong until I found out what the lumps were.
My first thought was to do what the western doctors say, but also to get Eastern medical help as it has helped someone I know get through cervical cancer.
All the best, and prayers to you.

Wish you the best of luck in your fight!


I think it is up to the individual and how they want to approach extending their life OR deciding they have had enough?

Myself? I would rather die than allow the system to suck up every last asset I own and worked for rather than my family getting what I worked for to pass down to them by keeping me alive for a few extra days/months/years.

That's just me though.........

Good evening folks

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 months ago, had a right mastectomy and 2 lymph nodes removed which they said had a trace of cancer in them, so 3 weeks later i had to have more surgery to remove the rest of the nodes, 2 more had cancer, 4 did not have cancer.

they had to go in through the old wound to get the other nodes out, tougher than the mastectomy the surgeon told me.

any way I have to back in on monday to talk to the oncologists about chemo and possible radiation treatment.

i have read and researched and quite frankly i do not think i could go through with it, i am thinking of the natural route of healing, plant based diet which i have already started. below is a link i would like your opinion on>>>

Happy New Year to you all

Best Wishes. Proceed how you want to proceed. Get the facts from multiple sources and decide. Whatever you come to believe in will have the best result (the placebo effect),

Look into iscador treatment - it did wonders for a friend with aggresive breast cancer with did require a double masectomy. She'd didn't do chemo & radiation but followed the indications in the book "Four Fold Healing" and is in better health then ever, cancer free for ten years now. She believes it's working so it does.

Then their is my sister with lung cancer, a weird type of cancer, who has done chemo and radiation, I didn't think she'd survive it - but she believes in it (was in the medical field most of her life) and it's working for her.

Then there are the side effects - short term and long term.

Don't let anyone push you into a rushed decision, but move quickly.

Again, best wishes and freedom from fear.

Well actually, that's where you live. My prostate cancer was cured for $32.00 out of pocket...total for parking at the oncology centre. But that's yet another debate, isn't it?

I had my last round of chemo 28 years ago. The course was very rough, in fact I bailed on the final scheduled round. But the results had been very good at that point and my doctor concurred.

I don't recall what my out of pocket expenses were but I wasn't making a lot of money at the time and as I remember it took about 6 or 8 months to finish paying it off.

Oh. Did I mention that it was 28 years ago? I've been cancer free (except for a few basal cell thingies that get frozen off of my skin once in a while) and healthy ever since. The only lasting effect that I might be able to blame on the treatment is about 10 pounds that I just can't get back.

It is not a choice between one or the other, strongly suggest that you change your diet anyway for the better and also make sure you really have a clean source of water that isn't contaminated, so use filters with activated-carbon filters. Also reduce intake of anything that monsanto provides which includes meat that has been grown using gmo animal feed. If your environment stresses you try to find ways to reduce that stress as that can be detrimental to recovery.

There is evidence that Cannabis oil can cure cancer. Given that big pharma cannot profit from something that they cannot patent, it gets ignored, for more profitable treatments,

If I was in your position I would meditate and consider if chemotherapy would help me in the future. By trying to shift my conciousness to a future timeline to get a positive or negative answer. If that make sense,

My prayers and good luck whatever you decide.

Neither...brachytherapy (internal radiation). Precise insertion of radioactive 'seeds' into the prostate. Did the trick, and thanks for the high-five!

I was talking to a woman that had breast cancer. She had mastectomies and also underwent radiation and chemo. She responded well and the last I heard she was fine. I'm not trying to push you into a decision. I'm just giving you food for thought.

It is your right to try alternatives, but allow me to tell you a story about my mom (who passed a couple of days ago) and her trip through cancer.

About 10 years ago she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, an aggressive type that took hold very quickly. Normally they measure it in millimeters but this was the size of a softball. It was eating her alive and she lost weight down to skin and bones.

The process once it started was very quick.

Then we got her into the hospital, and the mayo clinic, and after surgery, Chemo.
The Chemo completely killed the cancer. Here is the weird thing about it. She didn't lose all of her hair, the color came back, the life came back.

She lived 10 years longer due to the chemotherapy.
She would have died within a year without it.

It is amazing what chemo can do to eradicate cancer now.

Meremortal. have you ever heard of Chaga..?

Look into it..Read as much as you can. You can buy online or you may know someone who has a bunch. You can no doubt find it in Ireland.

Chaga

More on Chaga


Google it and make up your own mind...Chemo as someone said has came on leaps and bounds in the last decade. but nothing says you cant try both.

I know that finding out about the cancer is scary and that it's a huge decision to make. Good luck.

Well, whatever you choose to do, best of luck to you!

Just don't disregard the option of chemo,
because it is effective.

I lost my wife to pancreatic cancer 5 years ago. She had such aggressive chemo, that it is what actually killed her, but also being one of the most aggressive cancers, we were advised that it was the only real choice.

You have a form of cancer that actually has a great cure statistic using chemo, so I would recommend that you go through with it, and at the same time you can strengthen your immune system with many of the holistic recommendations mentioned in this thread.

Your positive attitude will also serve you well, so keep thinking about being cancer free.

I wish you the very best. You can beat this.

like i said Mark it was for one day, the scary adrenal vibe is not good for us, like meeting 10 tigers in an hour, that's what the word cancer does, sends the heebee jeebees to us all , when we find out we have it, or a friend or a family member has it we panic, am i next

. we forget we have cancer in our bodies, we were born with it! its not alien to us, it just gets out of kilter!?

we have 10,000 cancel cells ,but we have 10,000 cancer killing cells,some times the cancer cells form tumours cos they find an excuse to multiply,many factors cause cancer, i know for one that stress caused mine and a #e diet!

i started juicing and changed to a veg diet,fish and sometimes chicken (rare occasion) i lost 1 stone and a half, i was over weight and always hungry for the stuff that is so bad! think i need to shut up now x
