Hello ATS ... I’m writing this thread after alot of soul searching, hopefully I'm doing the right thing .
I've been on ATS site for years an had a couple of different usernames; ko1punch was one I used and a couple of others . I am 41 years old and a
I’m a hv fitter on the sub-stations.
About 4 years ago I was told I had Ostersarcoma, www.macmillan.org.uk... which is a bone cancer. I got a tumour in my right hip joint which was the
size of an orange when they found it , I was advised to have chemo as soon as possible, I had 7 months Chemotherapy in Christies in Manchester.
I was in Christies from monday morning until friday afternoon for the whole period,I lost 3 stone, all my hair on my body and I looked like death when
they had finished ....half way through the chemo they cut the tumour out and I had a partial pelvis and hip replacement.
The doctors told me the chemo hadn’t worked and the tumour was still "alive" when they cut it out and I had a choice if I wanted to carry on the
treatment or not ,i was advised that the chemo could help still if i had any residue cancer cells in my blood, as I was in a vunerable state I agreed
to carry out the course of chemo.
After the chemo had finished I went back to work and got on with my life as best as I could. About a year later I got secondary tumours in my lungs. I
had key hole surgery and they cut out 3 tumours out and left 2 tumours in my lungs because they were in dangerous places and to risky to cut out . The
3 tumours were sent off for biopsy and showed they were cancerous. I was advised that I needed 6 months of chemo asap ...ok this is where it gets
interesting .... I’d read this thread by TheAlmo .................... www.abovetopsecret.com... you should read this thread .
So I decided to try this as I wasn’t having chemo again ...never again. I spoke to theAlmo a couple of times through mail on ats ... and researched
the info in his thread ...so I started taking 100mg Mebendazole tablets 3 times a day ,200 mg cimetidine tablets 4 times a day www.canceractive.com...
and 50 grams of Glutamine power twice a day. en.wikipedia.org... That was last year in March or April .
I have revisited the hospital for six month check up for CT scans and chest x-rays alternatively since been told there was two tumours left in my
lungs. The doctors believed the cancer would spread without treatment, their only option chemo. I have not told the specialist the treatment I am
still currerntly taking and I have continued to go back for appointments.
The first CT scan after three months showed no change and the tumours both still present. The next appointment was six months later again (9 months in
total) , a chest x-ray which showed nothing and my chest was clear. At this stage the doctors were very shocked and only asked me if I felt OK and If
I did to come back in six months time for a CT scan. #
I continued to take what I was taking and went back six months later (15 months since the tumours were cut out) for the CT scan. This CT showed that
one of the tumours had dissapeared and the other had remained the same size which the doctor has recently stated this could be old scar tissue and
nothing to worry about which does not make sense to me after all this time.
I have recently been for my second chest x-ray since the three tumours were cut out ( 21 months) and again this has shown no relapse and all clear. My
specialist is now telling me I’m in remission and the longer no cancer isnt showing the less chance it is of coming back. I asked the doctor if he
should of seen any sign of cancer spreading by now,knowing that he believed 21 months ago he could do nothing for me except trying another course of
chemo (when i was offered the second course of chemo i asked him what are the chances of success and he said it had more chance of working the first
time and the chances of it working the first time was not good )the doctor said it should of spread throughout my body by now and he should being
seeing it on the x-rays and CT scans.
I haven’t told my specialist what ive been taking and he has never asked me. I mentioned some alternative cures to him when I was told about the
secondary tumours and he didnt know about any of them ... so I haven’t mentioned it again ..
Feel free to ask any questions i’d be happy to help
And last but not least i’d like to say thank you to TheAlmo and ATS.
