Sorry I have been M.I.A. but here is my dad’s update:
This past Wednesday, we went up to Houston to have a followup visit at MD Anderson Cancer Center. My dad went through another round of bloodwork
tests, xrays w Barium contrast, and CT scans of his thoracic and pelvic region.
The head Genitourinary oncologist is the physician who sees my dad when we are up there, and he told us that the Torisel treatment is working very
well against his renal cancer. The tumor infiltrating the left kidney has shrunk a bit but the physiology has changed significantly. Comparison of CT
scans from April and Thursday identified an obvious physiological change in density and mass composition of the tumor in the left kidney. No
spreading of the cancer was found.
Whereas it was a solid tumor with clear outline has now changed into a more malleable, almost jelly like composition of the tumor. The change in its
appearance and density indicates that the mTOR inhibitor known as Torisel is starving the tumor of new blood supply, known as angiogenesis.
The tumor on his right adrenal gland has exhibited similar change in physiology. The only concern I had was the effect that the cancer has had on the
9th left rib. The report indicated a multi-level degenerative process that is releasing calcium from the bone and into the blood. However, the
physician was very happy with my dad’s progress. He indicated that sometime in the next 12 months, exicision of the left kidney would have to be
This is where is sort of gets interesting concerning the Liposomal Vitamin C. I asked him if he had ever read about Lip Vit C and the published cases
of people using it along with other natural supplements to have cured their cancer. He admitted that he had never heard of the Liposomal Vitamin C
therapy. I spoke with him for a good 10 minutes about the science behind it and the published articles that prove the efficacy of the Vitamin C form
to increase the bioavailability in the blood. He asked me to email all the information I have read, and implored my father to take the Lip Vit C, as
it would have no negative effect on his Torisel treatment.
My dad stopped drinking the Vitamin C concoction I prepared for him because he said he couldn’t stand the horrible taste of it. I have refused to
allow him to mix it with any sugar or honey as I am suspect of the sugar decreasing the bioavailability in the small intestine. Feel free to correct
me if I am wrong. I have thought of mixing it with a protein shake( 1banana, whey protein powder, Lip Vit C) if it will get him to drink it.
The only suggestion I made to the oncologist was to monitor my dad’s lipid levels since he will be taking the Lip Vit C mixture again. He agreed and
said he would recommend the monitoring to my dad’s oncologist back home.
My mom, dad, and brother told me afterwards that they were in shock that the oncologist had never heard of Liposomal Vitamin C therapy and that they
were very grateful I was there to speak on their behalf with the oncologist.
They knew I have always loved Chemistry and the Biomedical sciences, but now they have a greater appreciation for my knowledge. It’s a big relief
to know that my dad’s condition is improving, and can only hope to get input from you all regarding the issue of the mixture tasting ugly to him.
Thanks for reading and hope everyone is doing well.
